Moments of Truth is a poignant volume of stories in which a range of characters undergo some form of epiphanic transformation. The stories take place in a wide variety of contexts, including Ireland in the late nineteenth century and the early years of the twentieth century, to modern day New York.

Moments of Truth is a wonderful volume of short stories which beautifully illustrates the ambition of its author, Leo O'Reilly. The stories are set in a wide variety of contexts: from Ireland at the outbreak of the Great War and during the War of Independence to the present day. There are also stories set in modern day Ireland, alongside New York and a range of other destinations. There is a story concerning a key moment in modernist history, set in the Paris of the 1920s, when it was the world's cultural mecca. There is even a futuristic post-apocalyptic story, before the poignant postscript. This is a must read for anyone interested in short Irish fiction. The volume perfectly complements Leo O'Reilly's recently published debut novel, God's Own Country.
