Kevin Barry received widespread critical acclaim and the Rooney prize for Irish Literature following the publication of this first book of stories in 2007. His stories have since appeared in The New Yorker and in the Granta Book of the Irish Short Story. His debut novel, City Of Bohane, was published by Jonathan Cape in April 2011. `Could easily have been titled `These Are Little Masterpieces'. Barry gathers all the bewildered exasperation that Irish playwrights from Tom Murphy to Marina Carr and Enda Walsh have identified, and brings it, most brilliantly, to his dark, blackly hilarious and horrifically realistic narratives.'-Eileen Battersby, The Irish Times

Review:

“Magnificent. This is show-stopping stuff.” ―Sunday Tribune (Ireland)

“Immensely entertaining . . . A brilliant example of short story writing at its best.” ―The Sunday Business Post (Ireland)

“Some of the most beautiful and lyrical writing ever composed by an Irish writer . . . There are truly great things here. Expect more.” ―Irish Examiner

“A collection of vibrant, original, and intelligent short stories, and a number of the tales contained in There Are Little Kingdoms deserve to be read and reread, and to outlast the strange years that made them.” ―The Irish Times
