Show Them a Good Time

ebook
A NEW STATESMAN AND DAILY TELEGRAPH BOOK OF THE YEAR

Irish Book Awards Short Story of the Year

'A masterclass in the short story – bold, irreverent and agonisingly funny' SALLY ROONEY
'Heralds a rising star' IRISH TIMES

'Demands repeated reading' JON McGREGOR


'Announces the arrival of a brilliant talent' FINANCIAL TIMES

An urgent and unforgettable collection of stories, Show Them a Good Time explores types - men and women, their assigned roles and meanings - in modern society.

A young, broke Irish woman narrates her relationship with a successful comedian in New York; two hapless university students take to the stage in a bid to assert their autonomy; a school teacher makes her way through a series of dead-end dates, gamely searching for love or distraction as the world teeters towards ruin.

The characters in these magnificently accomplished stories are haunted as much by the future as they are by their pasts. Exuberant, irreverent and loaded with dark humour, Show Them a Good Time marks the arrival of a strikingly original new voice in fiction.
