Katrina Postor rated it really liked bbowen Apr 14, Very sorry I missed adding your post to the update page-Irish Short Story Week-yes a long week and getting longer, until April 31, I am focusing in part now on Emerging Irish Women writers. Sana Kapur added it May 13, I will definitely be exploring all the other posts on Irish Short Story Week and am looking forward mysferious the two topics you have coming up.

But to me, it felt like something that was too complicated to understand.
