A Pitying of Doves £5.95

Felicity McCall

A Pitying of Doves is the first short-story collection from award-winning playwright, screenplay writer and novelist Felicity McCall.

Set against the backdrop of her native South Armagh, the stories reflect the symbiotic relationship between people and environment and explore how the circumstances of time and place may define our life far more than external politics.

Among her many characters, growing in familiarity from story to story, are dislocated, un-rooted, memorable figures, both haunted and haunting. They patrol the stories with an unnerving coincidence, strange casualties of the forces which propel childish gangs and adult passions to closure of a sort.

A Pitying of Doves displays McCall’s passion for detail and complexities of themes, yet throughout, her eye is refreshingly dispassionate and coolly humane.
