Tales of the Bright the Dark and the Bizarre is a compilation of short stories with an Irish backdrop. The title could be taken as self-explanatory as the various stories touch all aspects of human emotion. Peopled by fascinating characters the book has a strong vein of dark humour throughout. Contemporary Ireland and superstitious Ireland of the early fifties vividly brought to life.

Contemporary Ireland and superstitious Ireland of the early fifties brought vividly to life. Ponder the fate of the missing policeman whose brief marriage to a lesbian has the local populance frightened and bewildered; conjure up the lifestyle of young men where the pub and rural dancehall offer the only escape from the social poverty of an era where the automobile is tentatively making its appearance; what happens when an aging farmer advertises for love in the Lonely Hearts section? All twelve stories are thought provoking and truly memorable.
