So Late in the Day
Claire Keegan could pen a masterclass in craft and nuance. Her slight novellas are droplets of gold meant to be devoured first and then again and again. 'So Late In The Day' is a compilation of three short stories that pull out the microscope on misogyny, but so quietly, and with a surgeon's skill; at first, you don't know what's happening, and then you realize you aren't breathing. Keegan long ago took Chekhov's advice in one of his letters to 'write coolly.' Take advantage of the most exquisite writing of our time in this tiny, dense, and gorgeous book!
