‘Fiercely inventive’ ― Irish Times

‘The most important Irish short story collection since Dubliners ― Spiked

‘A supercharged gothic debut from an Irish writer to watch’ ― Guardian

 

Room Little Darker

From one of Ireland’s most grindingly authentic and radically original talents, Room Little Darker explores the clandestine aspects of modern life through jagged, visceral tales of wanton sex, broken relationships and futuristic nightmares.

An abusive father haunts his daughter and wife from the confines of a nursing home; a couple with an appetite for S&M discover their escapades have led them into something unimaginably bleak; a desperate addict scours the depths of degradation in a nightmare Dublin; an unborn foetus narrates her torturous experience of the Irish legal system; a paedophile acquires a robotic little boy as part of his sex therapy.

At once hilarious and profoundly moving, Caldwell’s stories probe sexuality and disturbing psychology, and the darkess and light that lives within us all.
