Overview

Inside Tim Johnston's Irish Girl, readers will find spellbinding stories of loss, absence, and the devastating effects of chance-of what happens when the unthinkable bad luck of other people, of other towns, becomes our bad luck, our town. Taut, lucid, and engrossing, provocative and dark-and often darkly funny-these stories have much to offer the lover of literary fiction as well as the reader who just loves a great story. "It's dark in here, but brilliant. Tim Johnston is as wise as he is original, and his stories are impossible to forget."-David Sedaris "This is white-knuckle prose; it means what it says and it says what it means. Not that I count words, but when an image can be etched in fewer than ten, I sit up and take notice. When an image is limned in fewer than five words, I pretty near shiver. The stories in Irish Girl provide more shiver per page than most stories provide in twenty."-Janet Peery, judge and author of The River Beyond the World
