Staff Reviews

Each story in this new collection from Claire Keegan features a relationship between a man and a woman - but these aren't relationships with a capital R. Exchanges or experiences or moments might be a better descriptor. Regardless, they are universal. Maybe not universally experienced, but universally known - and perhaps feared. Claire Keegan's writing is so sparing, so graceful, that you cannot stop turning it over in your own head, long after you've finished the book.
