"Ni Dhuibhne's pre-eminent technical gift - to evoke a character or mood unmistakably in three words - is dazzling." Irish Times
THE SHELTER OF NEIGHBOURS
‘The best stories in this five-star collection have all the lyricism and virtuosity we’ve come to expect from Irish writers, without being remotely folksy. She is particularly brilliant about the finer points of relationships that normally don’t get much attention – for instance, the hidden powerlines in a committee. ... It’s excruciatingly wicked and funny, delivered with unshowy wit.’ - Kate Saunders, The Times, Saturday, April 14th 2012.
By turns moving, thought-provoking, ironic and lyrical, this collection, Ni Dhuibhne's third for Blackstaff Press, is penetrating, acutely observed and highly original. The Shelter of Neighbours confirms Ni Dhuibhne as one of Ireland's most important writers.
