9781855942011: Midwife to the Fairies: New and Selected Stories

Eilis Ni Dhuibhne is generally considered to be one of Ireland's finest practitioners of the short story. This book brings together nine of her best stories from her first two collections, ""Blood and Water"" and ""Eating Women is Not Recommended,"" as well as three brand-new stories. Ranging from the ultra realistic ""Some Hours in the Life of a Witch,"" to the surreal fantasy world of ""Fulfillment"" and ""The Wife of Bath,"" the stories describe ordinary and not so ordinary life, and the lives of women in particular, in the feminist and post-feminist eras in Ireland.

About the Author:

Eilis Ni Dhuibhne was born in Dublin in 1954 and is a graduate of University College, Dublin where she studied Old and Modern English and Irish Folklore. She was awarded a PhD in 1982 and is the author of many articles on folklore topics and also a well-known writer of fiction and drama. She works as an Assistant Keeper in the National Library of Ireland.

Review:

"Ni Dhuibhne skillfully turns what seems like a dim bleak image into a tale full of compassion, pathos, intrigue, reflection, and even humor... [Her] deft and deliberate hand will delight all short-story lovers. A great one for the nightstand, although one of two might be best read during daylight hours."
