Author and Novelist Sarah Moore-Fitzgerald.
“For too long, Pat O’Connor has been the Irish short story scene’s best kept secret. People In My Brain is a stunning debut, a full throttle collection that displays this hugely talented writer’s gifts in all their dazzling glory. Few weave sentences with his flair, fewer still risk the directions in which his wild imagination strays. It’s a joy to have these stories in print, and legions of readers around the world are about to be thrilled. This is just outrageously good.”
̶ Billy O’Callaghan, author of My Coney Island Baby
“I thoroughly enjoyed it. The stories are wonderfully wry and unexpected, full of devilish twists and vivid, memorable characters. The whole collection is completely engaging.”
̶ Donal Ryan, author of From a Low and Quiet Sea
