From the Back Cover:

'These are stories which powerfully address an important theme: the poignance and fragility of private lives in the shadow of public events. They mark out the balance and imbalance--the joy and defeat, the darkness of cruelty against the sweet ordinariness of life--in vivid and witty writing which never loses its compassion.' - Eavan Boland, author of In a Time of Violence
