A modern classic – a collection of tales about Dublin from an unsung master of the short story
Never before published in the UK, Maeve Brennan’s Dublin stories are unsung masterpieces.
Brennan left her native Dublin for the States before she was twenty years old, in 1934, and for most of her life worked for the New Yorker, writing book reviews, fashion notes – and these magnificent stories.
The stories, set mainly in suburban, lower middle-class Dublin between the wars, are divided into 3 sections: the first set of stories are autobiographical childhood sketches; the second and third sections contain Brennan’s masterpieces – a series of tales about two families, the Derdons and the Bagots, and the disappointing, lonely marriages which lie at the heart of each family.
Up there with the great short story writers – Katherine Mansfield, Chekhov, George Mackay Brown, etc.

‘Remarkable stories… which give a striking sense of largeness, as disturbingly profound as if Brennan had written a major novel.’
‘A book that deserves its place in any serious library of Irish writing.’
Maeve Brennan was one of the great New Yorker writers of the Fifties and Sixties. Her stories have only been available in the US. She died in New York in 1993, at the age of seventy-six.
