Walk the Blue Fields: Stories

Walk the Blue Fields: Stories - Claire Keegan When this story collection opened with a story in the second person, I was immediately both intrigued and concerned. It takes a lot to pull off such a uniquely styled story, but the slowly unfolding plot and gradually darkening tale hooked me from the very beginning and never let go. The first story, The Parting Gift, instantly became one of my favorite short stories, and as I read on I continued to be impressed. Keegan has a unique and captivating style, and I can honestly say that this is one of the best short story collections I've come across.

If you're a fan of Irish literature, occasionally bizarre but always entertaining stories, and some darkly captivating plots, then this is the collection for you.
