    This is an interesting collection of short stories - or vignettes is perhaps a better way to describe them. There are some stories where there really seems to be an ending, and others where it's almost as if the reader walked in and out of a conversation. It was interesting listening in the car, particularly as the narrators are Irish. I'm not sure the stories would be nearly as poignant on the printed page.
