Gradam Uí Shúilleabháin, Irish Language Book of the Year 1999
From the acclaimed author of Ding (1982) and The Atheist. A miscellany of quirky mystery without a trace of logic. There is no joy in logic according to Mac Mathúna, instead we have art at the opposite end of the spectrum, which more often than not is closer to the madness of life than anything else.
The characters in this collection include unchristian Honda Civic driving priests, members of absurdist Gaelic societies, a possessed horse, and a believer in bloodless revolution led by the Hungarian Rubic, inventor of the eponymous cube.
