Read full description of the books:
I can't stop thinking about the first story in this collection, "Wuff! Wuff! Wuff! for de Valera" - it was such a subtle depiction of the costs of when women don't have reproductive choices. My other favorites were, "The Flowering" (this would go so well with Woolf's A Room of One's Own),
"Midwife to the Fairies," "Holiday in the Land of Murdered Dreams," and "Peacocks". A few fell flat, like "The Wife of Bath," "A Visit to Newgrange," and "Garden of Eden". "Fulfilment" is a strange little story about a woman who turns into a dog-killer. Ni Dhuibhne often reminds me of her older contemporary, Edna O'Brien. This is definitely a collection worth picking up.
