The Art of the Glimpse

The Art of the Glimpse, an anthology of the very best Irish short stories selected by Sinéad Gleeson, will be published on 1 October 2020. This anthology, which includes Claire Keegan’s tale ‘Antarctica’, is a radical revision of the canon of the Irish story, and unites classic works with neglected writers and marginalised voices – women, LGBT writers, Traveller folk-tales, lost 19th-century voices and the first wave of ‘new Irish’ writers from elsewhere now making a life in Ireland. Sinéad Gleeson brings together stories ranging from the sublime to the downright bizarre, from classics to the new generation of writers, and from well known names to previously unpublished talent. The collection paints a tremendous spectrum of experience. Read more here
