From the blurb - This is a collection of gripping stories , most of which are set in the Irish border counties, where, in these tales confusion , divided loyalties and heightened emotions are part of the stuff of everyday life. The stories range from childhood confrontations with the adult world, to murders and reprisal, and where a farmer tries to live on in peace despite his family's fanaticism and the announcement that he is on a Provo death list.
First published in hardcover by Gollancz UK in 1978, this is the first PB edition, published by O'Brien Press, Dublin 1985.
