Audio: Godly Things (a Kilphouca story)
Each day this week will feature one reading from the Kilphouca stories: extracts from a collection of short stories in development, set in a fictional Irish town which has been gripped by mass hysteria—a hallucinatory contamination in the whiskey during a local festival. Written by Brian Manton.
“That fresh breeze in off the peat bog was Godly and all, but it never held her in the same reverie that small, ordinary, often mass-produced things did.”
Check back tomorrow for another Kilphouca story.
