Über diesen Titel


For the first time all of Bernard MacLaverty’s unforgettable short stories are gathered together in a beautiful hard cover edition containing a new introduction by the author

Since the publication of Secrets and Other Stories in 1977, Bernard MacLaverty has been celebrated as one of the finest living short-story writers. Writing in the New York Times, William Boyd summoned the shades of Yeats, Joyce, and Flann O'Brien, insisting that "MacLaverty sits perfectly comfortably" in their company. The Guardian simply said "MacLaverty is a master." Melding his native Irish sensibilities to those of his adopted west-coast Scotland, these tales attend to life’s big events: love and loss, separation and violence, death and betrayal. But the stories teem with smaller significant moments, too—private epiphanies, chilling exchanges, intimate encounters. A writer of great compassion, insight, and humanity, MacLaverty surprises us time and again with the sensitivity of his ear and the accuracy of his eye. Each of these extraordinary stories—with their wry, self-deprecating humor, elegance, and subtle wisdom—gets to the very heart of life.

About the Author:

Bernard MacLaverty has published five collections of short stories: The Great Profondo, Matters of Life & Death, Secrets, A Time to Dance, and Walking the Dog; and four novels: The Anatomy School, Cal, Grace Notes, and Lamb, which was shortlisted for the Booker Prize and won the Saltire Scottish Book of the Year Award. He has also written for broadcast and screen. His short film Bye Child won a BAFTA.
