A Lebanese student has had enough of a lecturer’s inappropriate advances; a frustrated author takes her revenge on a publisher; a petty dispute over a land boundary escalates wildly; a woman has had enough of her property flooding; a bankrupt developer takes his children to an uninhabited lake isle. In these dark, witty stories, award-winning author David Butler follows the lives of characters who are driven to the edge, and shines a light on the many sides of what it means to be Irish in the twenty-first century.
