Publisher: Leabhar Breac

Fonn A Níos Fiach is a novella, based on folklore from Dúiche Sheoigheach. Out of his own works, this is the author’s favourite.

This is a tense, emotive telling, with the sense of wilderness throughout. It would remind you of ‘The Old Man and thr Sea’ by Hemingway, but in this case it was hunger and the famine, and not heroism, that drove this man to hunt.
