So Late in the Day by Claire Keegan


Bookseller Review by Fleur:

‘A brief but illuminating window into the life of a man trying to get through the day in the aftermath of something big that is revealed at the end of the story. The time shared with the reader is not long, but the ideas, histories and significances triggered by the story are huge. Claire Keegan’s stories are so very good in their succinct power. Take the time to read this little book on a break or a train journey, and be reminded of what a great writer she is.’
