Tilting At Windmills

"A marvellous anthology of humorous outings which brings to the world a healing and uplifting humanism." [Thomas MacCarthy, Author and Poet] Tilting At Windmills is a multi-award winning collection of humorous stories and essays. It contains four prize-winning pieces, including two First Prizes from Listowel Writers' Week Competitions, and one short-listed by Readers Digest. This book casts an amused eye at the world and the author's native Ireland, and will make you laugh right from beginning to end. The pieces * ranging from light, social commentary, to farce, to more telling satire on politics and history * entertain without becoming too serious, or trivial. What readers say: "Whether stories, sketches, vignettes, dramas, this collection always raises a laugh or a smile. The author is a wonderful practitioner of that unmanageable Irish trait of being both funny and serious at the same time." [Professor Alan Titley] "Enchanting. A great voice. Pace and structure, perfect. Great command of the richness of the English Lexicon. Outstanding writing!" [James Hanna-Magill] "It was really enjoyable to find a fresh, new, original voice… I laughed and laughed…The writing has all the elements necessary to make the author a great, world popular writer. Awesome!" [K A Swanson]
