Fighting with shadows, or, Sciamachy by Dermot Healy( Book )

"Fighting with Shadows tells of violently sundered geographical borders, of maddening religious differences, of the anguished gaps between people as they struggle to find each other, and of how the dead reside among its inhabitants long after they've passed. The imagination's encounter with reality registers Dermot Healey's relentless fascination with the way things are seen and with the things themselves, or the "erotica of little things."

The collected short stories by Dermot Healy( Book )
3 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 68 libraries worldwide
"Dermot Healy wrote intricate and innovative short stories that, along with works by Neil Jordan and Desmond Hogan, relaunched the Irish short story tradition. Set in small-town Ireland and the equally suffocating confines of the Irish expat communities of 1970s London, Healy's stories show compassion toward the marginalized and the dispossessed. Gathering all of Healy's stories together for the first time, this collection includes the long prose-drama "Before the Off" and Healy's final short works, "Along the Lines" and "Images"
