A fine first edition of this limited-print short story, produced by the Colophon Press. In a green Murillo card cover. Only 232 copies were produced - this is one of the 175 Murillo card copies, signed and numbered by the author. A further 26 were lettered A-Z and bound in cloth, and 6 were numbered I-VI and distributed privately.


The traumas of the Irish past, personal and national, the unspoken understanding between brother and sister, the preparing of the meal they are to share as memorial to a murdered father, the pain that strains through the casual talk between them — all this is managed with wonderful vividness and tact and the sort of flair that defies analysis.

All of our books that a have dust wrapper are covered in clear protective, removable film and are packed professionally in bubble wrap and a box for shipping so that they reach you in perfect condition.
