REVIEW ã A Slanting of the Sun Ision At the heart of these stories crucially is how people are drawn to each other and cling to love when and where it can be found In a number of the these stories emotional bonds are forged by traumatic events caused by one of the characters between an old man and the frightened young burglar left to guard him while his brother is beaten; between another young man and the mother of a girl whose death he caused when he crashed his car; between a. 45 stars A collection of twenty short stories from one of Ireland s most loved authors this is Donal Ryan s third published title The consecutive successes of The Spinning Heart and The Thing About December were the stuff of dreams Originally rejected many times the author s novels were discovered by an intern in a small publishing house and went on to capture the nations heart and imagination whilst riding high on the bestseller list for most of 2014 Ryan s lyrical prose and study of a rural Irish community recovering from economic downturn showed how the literary form can thrill a reader as much as any contemporary fiction The author s talent at showing beauty in the everyday mundane lives of individuals shone from the pages of his books and introduced a bright new voice to the already established yet unofficial Canon of Irish literatureUnderstandably there was a fear that this collection may not be as powerful or have the same origina

REVIEW ã A Slanting of the Sun Donal Ryan's short stories pick up where his acclaimed novels The Spinning Heart and The Thing About December left off dealing with dramas set in motion by loneliness and displacement and revealing stories of passion and desire where less astute observers might fail to detect the humanity that roils beneath the surface Sometimes these dramas are found in ordinary mundane situations; sometimes they are triggered by a fateful encounter or a tragic dec. A true talent this author makes us see behind the faces that are presented to the public See behind these lonely displaced down and out people to their humanity hopes and failures All of these stories are very good but a few stood out for me One of the stories is Lark where a woman is thinking of things to do for her husband a rather normal life kids just leaving to go to work and then well what happens just whacked me in the face I actually hade to reread the paragraph Won t soon forget that one The other one concerns a priest in Syria and a hurling game another one that surprised meOf course since all these stories take place in Ireland hurley and hurling is mentioned in many of the stories and in some the brogue speech helps make them seem authentic I have read both of his books and loved them too A new favorite author for me

REVIEW ã A Slanting of the Sun Lonely middle aged shopkeeper and her assistant Disconnection and new discoveries pervade stories involving emigration an Irish priest in war torn Syria or immigration an African refugee in Ireland Some of the stories are set in the same small town in rural Ireland as the novels with names that will be familiar to Ryan's readersIn haunting prose Donal Ryan has captured the brutal beauty of the human heart in all its failings hopes and uiet triumphs. Don t read this unless you are in a happy place for this a dark dark collection of short stories that deal with the darker shameful side of human nature The prose in places is sublime up there with Ireland s great writers Each story is powerful and compelling similar is style to the Spinning Heart Not to be rushed but should be savoured
