Bullfighting moves from classrooms to graveyards, local pubs to bullrings; featuring an array of men at their working day and at rest, taking stock and reliving past glories.
Each is concerned with loss in different ways - of their place in the world, of power, virility, love - of the boom days and the Celtic Tiger.
Brilliantly observed, funny and moving, the stories in Bullfighting present a new vision of contemporary Ireland, of its woes and triumphs.
