An Eochair – The Key by Máirtín Ó Cadhain


An Eochair/ The Key by Máirtín Ó Cadhain

Charlie Byrne’s has just received new dual language copies of Máirtín Ó Cadhain’s unique work, The Key/ An Eochair.

In The Key/ An Eochair, one of Máirtín Ó Cadhain’s most kafkaesque novellas, J., a “paper Keeper,” accidentally traps himself in his office when his key breaks in the lock. The Key a mixture of satire, farce, black comedy, and ultimately, tragedy – describes the attempts of J. and various other characters including his wife, civil service colleagues, and superiors to extricate J. from his confinement. Yet all efforts to free J. must be in accordance with civil service protocols, and no such protocol exists for J.’s unique dilemma.
