The fifteen short stories in this collection immerse readers in rural Ireland. They are full of singing and laughing, pranks and family disputes, desperation and comfort. Mike Mac Domhnaill's distinctive voice and prose-poetry-like writing style bring to life characters both familiar and vivid. He makes the visceral pain of grieving real, and forcefully reminds readers of the disconnect between memory and reality, and how that disparity has its own healing power. The stories in Sifting are marked by an authenticity of character and dialogue, and peppered with references to Irish history and culture. 'These people, places and situations are wonderfully observed; full of the wry humour and the lilt and roll of west Limerick. There is a richness and a verisimilitude to the dialogue and a natural rhythm to the language that draws in and holds the reader, who becomes an eavesdropper, present but unseen.' —Donal Ryan, author of The Spinning Heart Mike Mac Domhnaill won RTÉ's Francis MacManus Short Story Award in 2013. He has had numerous poems and short stories published, in Nua-Aois, An Cloigeann is a Luach, The Stony Thursday Book, Microphone On, Dal gCais, LÁ, Weekly Observer, Limerick Leader and Feasta. He has two books of poetry: Mac Baintrí/Widow's Son (2009) and Macalla Maidu (2013). He lives in Newcastle West, County Limerick.

'It is impossible to explain why Yevgeny chose Liza Annenskaya, as it is always impossible to explain why a man chooses this and not that woman.' This collection of eleven stories spans virtually the whole of Tolstoy's creative life. While each is unique in form, as a group they are representative of his style, and touch on the central themes that surface in War and Peace and Anna Karenina. Stories as different as 'The Snowstorm', 'Lucerne', 'The Diary of a Madman', and 'The Devil' are grounded in autobiographical experience. They deal with journeys of self-discovery and the moral and religious questioning that characterizes Tolstoy's works of criticism and philosophy. 'Strider' and 'Father Sergy', as well as reflecting Tolstoy's own experiences, also reveal profound psychological insights. These stories range over much of the Russian world of the nineteenth century, from the nobility to the peasantry, the military to the clergy, from merchants and cobblers to a horse and a tree. Together they present a fascinating picture of Tolstoy's skill and artistry. ABOUT THE SERIES: For over 100 years Oxford World's Classics has made available the widest range of literature from around the globe. Each affordable volume reflects Oxford's commitment to scholarship, providing the most accurate text plus a wealth of other valuable features, including expert introductions by leading authorities, helpful notes to clarify the text, up-to-date bibliographies for further study, and much more.

WINNER OF THE NOBEL PRIZE® IN LITERATURE 2013 In these fifteen short stories--her eighth collection of short stories in a long and distinguished career--Alice Munro conjures ordinary lives with an extraordinary vision, displaying the remarkable talent for which she is now widely celebrated. Set on farms, by river marshes, in the lonely towns and new suburbs of western Ontario, these tales are luminous acts of attention to those vivid moments when revelation emerges from the layers of experience that lie behind even the most everyday events and lives. "Virtuosity, elemental command, incisive like a diamond, remarkable: all these descriptions fit Alice Munro."--Christian Science Monitor "How does one know when one is in the grip of art--of a major talent?....It is art that speaks from the pages of Alice Munro's stories."--Wall Street Journal From the Trade Paperback edition.

Avinuo Kire’s is a fresh, young voice from Nagaland, in India’s northeast. In ‘The Power to Forgive’, the title story of this strong collection, Avinuo Kire tells the moving story of a rape survivor who, at the threshold of a new life, looks back on the incident that has shaped nearly two decades of her life and wonders if she made the right choice. Culled from folk and tribal traditions of Naga life, Kire’s stories take us into a world where spirits converse with humans, unsuspecting people are drawn into the movement for Naga independence, a man dies quietly of cancer, a mother wonders if she did the right thing in giving her child a name different from the one she intended… While the long drawn-out conflict and militancy form the backdrop of many of the stories, it is the finely drawn portraits of ordinary people in Naga society that mark this unusual collection. Published by Zubaan.

It was the foul play that caused the annihilation of Fish, when the Devil was shot in the thick of a wrestling match. And there was only one way for the referee to put things right - with another murder. This work is a collection of stories, set partly in Jamaica, partly amongst the Jamaican diaspora of the United States.
