After a Dance: Selected Stories

182

By Bridget O’Connor

After a Dance is the compiled collection of short stories from acclaimed writer Bridget O’Connor, with an exclusive preface from the author’s daughter, Constance Straughan.

Bridget O’Connor was one of the great short story writers of her generation. She had a voice that was viscerally funny and an eye for both the glaring reality and the absurdity of the everyday.

In After A Dance, we meet a selection of O’Connor’s most memorable characters often living on the margin of their own lives: from the anonymous thief set on an unusual prize to the hungover best man clinging to what he’s lost, to the unrepentant gold-digger who always comes out on top. From unravelling narcissists to melancholy romantics all human life is here – at its best and at its delightful worst.

‘These are some of the wildest, arresting, just plain brilliant short stories I’ve read in a long time.’ – Roddy Doyle, author of The Woman Who Walked Into Doors
