Description
This 1996 collection of two novellas and seven short stories, the author of Out of Focus comically reduces life's problems to the minute details of everyday existence, including such crucial issues as how to best put one's pants on. In A Narrative of the Proceedings of the Bounty of Nature Enterprise, the familiar tale of Mutiny on the Bounty is transposed to a futuristic, outer space setting. Combining deadpan humor with delightfully odd illustrations, the fictions of Alf Mac Lochlainn are akin to the works of his countrymen Flann O'Brien and Samuel Beckett.

"Alf Mac Lochlainn writes a very fine prose … the finest style I have encountered in any Irish writer in recent years."—John Banville
