The Dogs of Inishere
StoriesBook - 2017
The Dogs of Inishere collects stories from across Alannah Hopkin's thirty-year career as a fiction and travel writer. The stories presented here move from adolescence to middle age, sensitive always to the particular social, emotional, and intellectual challenges of the different phases of a life. An adolescent girl bristles against the gendered assumptions and expectations of mid-60s London. A young writer struggles to commit fully to the artist's life. A group of pub regulars in a sleepy seaside town observe the quiet disappoints of love and marriage. Along the way, Hopkin's stories also wrestle and reckon with numerous literary influences, including Austen, Byron, Poe, Wilde, Lowry, and B.S. Johnson.
