Dublin Where the Palm Trees Grow is a collection of haunting and provocative stories from the acclaimed author of The Love Test and The Last Shot. Set mostly in Dublin, the stories strike out with the intensity and subtlety characteristic of Hugo Hamilton's work, which the Observer has described as 'complex and smooth as an onyx egg'.Cutting an Irish sense of crisis and tragi-comedy with a German sense of irony and realism, the stories offer a unique view of Ireland through the eyes of a writer of Irish-German parentage. It is contemporary Ireland set against the backdrop of Europe and beyond, a country full of exiles in which human relationships are examined through oblique angles and fractured identities.This collection is full of what Andre Brink calls the 'persistent echoes' and 'remarkable understatement' of Hugo Hamilton's work, confirming his reputation as one of Ireland's most original writers.
