Deepak Chopra - Life After Death, The Burden of Proof Audiobook
If there is something distinctive about Irish short stories, it may be the fact that people die in them. You would not think there was enough space, in a few thousand words, to fit a corpse, but that is no great problem to an Irish writer, who comes from a country where people seem to die with greater frequency than anywhere else - which is to say, at least once each.
Matters Of Life & Death
Any book of stories from Bernard MacLaverty is a cause for celebration, but Matters of Life and Death is more than that, as it is - without question - one of the finest contemporary examples of the short story as a genre. Beginning with the sudden, nauseating terror of a family caught up in an explosion of shocking sectarian violence and ending with the white-out of an Iowa blizzard and a different kind of fear, Matters of Life and Death is a book about bonds and connections, made and broken, secret and known. Vivid, beautifully controlled and written with effortless skill and empathy, these stories are object lessons in the art of short fiction. MacLaverty writes with consumamte skill This is a book to cherish and one to read and re-read with pleasure in the skilful craft of its composition". He reminds us that although life is a dangerous, painful business, we should never despair". He is in behind your eyes before you feel his thinking knife
