An urgent and unforgettable collection of stories, ‘Show Them a Good Time’ explores types – men and women, their assigned roles and meanings – in today’s society. A young, broke Irish woman narrates her relationship with a successful comedian in New York. Angela makes her way through a series of meaningless, dead-end dates in a basement restaurant. Two university students collaborate on a play – but the unemployment office lurks around the corner. Exuberant and irreverent, accomplished and unexpected, it marks the arrival of an extraordinary new Irish voice in fiction.
