Boulevard Wren and Other Stories
Author: Blindboy Boatclub
Release Date: November 01, 2019
Ireland's most acclaimed satirist is back with a second collection of short stories to provoke, unsettle and illuminate.
Roving through the centuries, from the barren fields of the Famine-struck West to the hyperreal adscape of our technocratic present, the second collection of short stories from Blindboy Boatclub is a wild and exhilarating hike along the knotted paths of the Irish subconscious.
From the time-travelling effects of tweed suits, to a vengeful farmer who hypnotises old people into believing they're cows after his farm is turned into a nursing home, these stories are characteristically surreal, yet littered with moments of profound insight and quiet devastation.
