Ireland has a rich tradition of short stories and our contemporary writers are continuing that tradition. Try some of the classics, like William Trevor or Bernard MacLaverty, or experiment with newer writers - Jan Carson, Sophia Hillan, Eddie Cunningham, Jamie Guiney and Kelly Creighton.

Local writer and academic Sophia Hillan has worked with Arlen House Publishing to produce this stunning collection of her short stories. Compelling, with a delicate touch and a wry insight, this delightful book is very satisfying.
Sophia has also published two novels The Friday Tree and The Way We Danced, as well as a factual exploration of Jane Austen’s family connections in Donegal ‘ May, Lou and Cass : Jane Austen’s nieces in Ireland’.
