After four collections of bestselling memoirs, Derry’s king of nostalgia, Philip Cunningham, has now turned his hand to fiction. And regular readers will be delighted to learn that the author has lost none of his impish, innocent humour.
In this collection of short stories and poems, Phil gives us a warm and lyrical insight into northwest Ireland from the 1940s to the present day. Within these pages, you’ll meet nosey neighbours, cranky undertakers, psychopathic barbers, vindictive policemen, hapless crooks – and a host of ordinary folk, all made real by Phil’s sparkling prose.
You’ll laugh, you’ll cry – and you’ll swear you recognise the characters. But one thing’s for certain, you’ll never be bored. Phil Cunningham’s The Island Man will leave you wanting more.
