We know about the leaders of the 1916 Rising. But what about the men and women who fought on the streets of Dublin? What did they go through during those brutal days after the clock struck on 24 April 1916? For them, the conflict was a mix of bloody fighting and energy-sapping waiting. These are their stories.
A topical novel about lost love, growing older and the realities of life in a society that is still coming to terms with thirty years of violence, some of that violence still very present and dangerous.
Ranging from urgently contemporary London and Dublin to New York's Lower East Side in the nineteenth century, from dark comedy to poignancy, from the wryly provocative to the quietly beautiful, this title includes stories that offer a gathering of dreamers and lost souls who contend with the confusions of living.
