Trouble – Book Launch


This event has now passed.

The Stinging Fly Press invites you to the post-lockdown IRL launch of Trouble by Philip O Ceallaigh.

“Trouble is another stunning collection of stories from Philip O Ceallaigh, a writer who continues to amaze me with the intelligence and muscular elegance of his writing.” – Lenny Abrahamson

Fuelled by his piercing wit and unfaltering gaze, this new collection from Philip O Ceallaigh is both a meditation on human frailty and an unflinching interrogation of love-of its losses and gains, and the surprising ways that it delivers purpose and meaning to our lives.

Philip O Ceallaigh has published more than fifty stories, most of which are collected here and in his two previous collections, Notes from a Turkish Whorehouse and The Pleasant Light of Day. He is a recipient of the Rooney Prize for Irish Literature, among other awards. He lives in Bucharest.
