So Late In The Day, by Claire Keegan (Faber 2023)

Another welcome short story from Clare Keegan published in a handsome little hardback. Like the others Faber have published in this format, the story has a resonance far beyond what's on the page - there is deep social history in her writing. This story is about the misogyny of the Irish male, as Cathal and Sabine fall in and out of love. Just brilliant, but if I had to choose, I'd say that Small Things Like These is her best...
