Overview

This is a book of short stories about life in modern Ireland. The title story, The Missing Postman, is the the longest, and tells about a robbery that goes wrong;where the two perpetrators, Zeb and Zoe, find themselve hiding out in the isolated cottage of a reclusive old bachelor, Martin Og. However, nothing is quite what it seems.
Brendan Behan's Women tells of Brendan's dilemna when he discovers that both his wife, Beatrice, and his mistress, Valerie, are pregnant at the same time. Brendan is holed up in New York's Chelsea hotel and has to decide which of them he wants.
Johnjo's tale is the story of man on the run both in England and Ireland. Disillusioned and bitter at having been ground down by the harshness of his life, he plans a rebellious 'last hurrah'.
Most of the protagonists have left Ireland's shores, ex-pats who spend their lives to-ing and fro-ing between the islands of Ireland and England, not really sure any longer where home lies.
