Quick Overview

<p>A bomb is born, lives, and dies in a rural secondary school; Ireland becomes a dumping ground for corpses; one family's genealogy begins in tragedy and ends in something far worse in 2111; a strange tribal matriarchy on the banks of the River Boyne is threatened with extermination. Over the course of these stories, the world breaks down in an endless cycle of hunger, desperation, violence, and domination, and we find a humanity left tender, collapsed, and full of a beautiful, primeval innocence. Fagan's raw blend of verve, humour, imagination, and warmth surges through these pages, revealing a world rendered both hopeful and disturbing, human and other, that is at once familiarand extraordinary. Hostages is Oisín Fagan's first collection. Paperback. Signed by the Author while stocks last.</p>
