Ath-aithne: Re-acquaintance by Martin MacIntyre
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Eighteen short-stories (14 in Gaelic and 4 in English) from a remarkable new writer who proves with this debut collection that he is indeed a master of the short story form. Extraordinary moments in ordinary lives, exuberant prose and a huge range of visions and voices combine to create a rich, vital and satisfying read. Whether in Aldershot, Uist, Glasgow, Nicaragua or elsewhere, the characters are brought to life with intelligence, passion and humour. Love, war, death, passion, belonging, identity, uncertainty, desire, tragedy and joy are just some of the themes which are skill-fully explored.
