About this title

Synopsis:

Published by the Stinging Fly Press in association with Fighting Words, the creative writing centre established in 2009 by Roddy Doyle and Sean Love, Fighting Tuesdays celebrates the creative efforts of twenty-four transition year students from a school right in the heart of Dublin city centre. `Twenty-four young writers sat and wrote the stories in this book, and I watched them. Their frowns and dark concentration, their laughter, their yawns and stretches-what is it about teenagers and their ability to stretch to three or four times their normal length? The way they filled the pages so quickly, and the way some of them discovered that they had to get up and go to the toilet every quarter of an hour. They were new to the job but already writers, with minds that told them to sit still and concentrate and bladders that told them to get up and wander. There were twenty-four minds in the room, and the twenty-four bladders. Luckily, the minds won and we have twenty-four great stories.'-Roddy Doyle ""What makes this one worth your time is the remarkable sophistication in evidence in these pages. These stories aren't just powerful; they're a timely portrait of modern Ireland.""-Irish Voice, April 4, 2012

Review:

What makes this one worth your time is the remarkable sophistication in evidence in these pages. These stories aren't just powerful; they're a timely portrait of modern Ireland. --Irish Voice
