Frank Kelly, ‘Father Jack’, launched Slices of Life, a collection of short stories on Wednesday 11th September. There was a wonderful atmosphere and great fun at the launch. Frank read one of the stories ‘William’. The author read the first half of ‘The Dinner Party’and told the audience that when they were home they could read the second half for themselves.
Some of the stories in ‘Slices of Life’:
‘Dinner Out’; A married woman on an evening out with an old flame reflects on what might have been.
‘Aunt Frances’; A woman going to live in France leads to an unlikely burial in the public cemetery of an Irish provincial town.
‘The Dinner Party’; A stunning surprise breaks up a post economic crash dinner party.
‘Breganmore’; The second coming of Christ occurs in an Irish rural village.
You’ve never read such a diverse collection of Short Stories in your life.
A couple of days after the launch I received the following e-mail:
