Nobody Needs to Know

Known for tense and often troubling stories in her award-winning debut, When Black Dogs Sing, Farrelly enters darker and murkier places in her second collection. In these stories, a girl witnesses her mother’s breakdown following the murder of her sister while backpacking around Europe; a teenage girl befriends a homeless girl with disastrous consequences; an EFL teacher fantasizes about a colleague; a couple fear for their lives when their neighbor begins making threats. Unsettling, often disturbing, these stories follow the lives of characters who, finding themselves in fearful situations, triumph against the odds.
