About this title


Readers of literary review's on both sides of the Atlantic (and listeners to Radio- Telefis Eireann) will have been acquainted with the highly accomplished short stories of Mr. Mac Intyre before the publication of his dazzlingly brilliant and funny first novel, The Charollais, in 1969. The tales in this collection deftly exploit the form and their setting in 'Such a Favour' a boy's mother believes his ear-trouble has been cured by the miraculous intervention of an Irish martyr; 'Willy Wynne, Con Moto' focuses on class divisions in a provincial cinema; a woman's reunion, in 'Exposure', with a stranger who saved her life ends on an unexpectedly sour note. 'Epithalamion' (the longest story in the book) tells frankly and with a wry humour of the inhibiting effects on a honeymoon of too liturgically opulent a bridal suite. This book is an assured and satisfying performance by an outstanding talent.
