TUARASCÁIL:SHEOL an scríbhneoir, Dermot Healy, cnuasach nua gearrscéalta Béarla le Micheál Ó Conghaile, The Colours of Man (Cló Iar-Chonnacht, €15) i mBaile Átha Cliath aréir.

Mhol Healy an leabhar mar “sheoid” agus na 17 scéal atá sa chnuasach mar “a rich wild dance of both truth and time. The blinks and breaths and belches of the characters come off the page with a rare authenticity. The physical self and the mental self combine, fall apart, unite, and then disappear again. In the distance hovering is another beginning, and a mad burst of crazy laughter that starts going up into the key of C with giggles and guffaws then silence”.
