The Mango War by Martin Malone
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Acutely observed, and often comic, Martin Malone's stories chart the hidden and darker currents beneath everyday, seemingly ordinary, family life. An Irish soldier who brings his Middle-East tour of duty home with him, a car-park attendant who ponders all that he witnesses, two sisters who have always shared everything, and a father and son trapped in a tragic aftermath are some of the deftly realised characters who memorably people these powerful tales of love, loss and betrayal. Cleanly written, and displaying a true gift for dialogue, "The Mango War and Other Stories" is a collection to reckon with.
