True Believers




A brilliant collection of short stories - 'funny, sad, shocking and piercing observations on Irish life' - Sunday Telegraph.

True Believers introduces us to a world of characters stunning in their variety. Here are sad-hearted priests, old friends, young lovers, rockers and rebels. Here are runaway husbands and runaway wives. Here are jokers and fanatics, punks and poets, thinkers and drinkers, chancers and killers. Here are the true believers, all clinging desperately to some kind of faith in a mutable and dangerous world.
