Snow Shoes

A collection of short stories ‘Rooted in the quotidian – a supermarket, a travelling salesman, a couple on a beach holiday – but full of wisdom, humanity and sly humour.  It may be the title of one of her stories, but Eileen Casey is herself The Genuine Article’ – Deirdre Madden

‘Macaw is a story that vividly, yet with tremendous subtlety and control, describes the tension between a teenage daughter’s burgeoning sexuality and a mother’s coming to terms with a terrible secret’ –

Derek Johns, Hennessy Literary Award Judge




Drinking The Colour Blue, Eileen Casey
