A New Statesman, Irish Times and Guardian Book of the Year ‘A masterclass . . . Bold, irreverent and agonisingly funny’ Sally Rooney A young, broke Irish woman narrates her relationship with a successful comedian in New York; two hapless university students take to the stage in a bid to assert their autonomy; a school teacher makes her way through a series of dead-end dates, gamely searching for love or distraction as the world teeters towards ruin. The characters in these magnificently accomplished stories are haunted as much by the future as they are by their pasts. Urgent and unforgettable, Show Them a Good Time marks the arrival of a strikingly original new voice in fiction. ‘Demands repeated reading’ Jon McGregor ‘Explores difficult questions about self-worth, agency and intimacy with thrilling sharpness’ Sunday Times ‘Announces the arrival of a brilliant talent’ Financial Times Winner of the Irish Book Awards Short Story of the Year 2019
