Show Them A Good Time

A returned emigrant struggles to get her life back on track in the grim little town she previously couldn’t wait to leave; two beleaguered students take to the stage in a desperate bid to assert their autonomy; a school teacher gamely keeps on searching for love or distraction as the world teeters towards ruin. The characters in Nicole Flattery’s stories are haunted as much by the future as they are by their pasts. Loaded with dark humour and chock-full of style, Show Them A Good Time marks the arrival of an exuberant and strikingly original new writer.
