‘The Key Signature & Other Stories’ by Noel King

keysignatureJoin us on Thursday the 8th of June at 6.30 pm for the launch of The Key Signature and Other Stories by Noel King.

The nineteen stories in this book concern the trials of modern man in an Ireland of the late twentieth and early twenty-first century. Each first-person narrator is grappling with something: host family father falling in love with the au pair, cross-dressing husband unleashing his grief and his vices after the funeral of his beloved wife, Men’s Shed participant falling in love with another male attendee. ‘The Key Signature’ is a superb debut collection of stories from a fine poet and actor.

Noel King was born and lives in Tralee, County Kerry. His poetry collections are published by Salmon: Prophesying the Past (2010), The Stern Wave (2013) and Sons (2015). He has edited more than fifty books of work by others (Doghouse Books, 2004-2013) and was poetry editor of Revival Literary Journal (Limerick Writers’ Centre) in 2012/13. He also enjoys acting and singing in amateur plays and musical theatre, and in the odd film. He was once a Bunratty Castle entertainer. The Key Signature & Other Stories is his debut collection of fiction.

Come and see Noel read from The Key Signature in our Middle Street shop at 6.30 pm on Thursday the 8th of June.

As always, everyone is welcome to attend ! For more information, simply contact us.
