Walking the Dog & Other Stories

Cape /Blackstaff Press(1994)

Bernard MacLaverty’s stories are at once beguiling and admonitory. You begin by being grateful for their upfront accuracy and end up in thrall to the truth behind them, their sense of proportion and sensitivity to pain.

Seamus Heaney

MacLaverty shows an amazing ability to take a knife to a scene, cut it to the heart and close it again with a swiftness and deftness that takes the breath away.

The Scotsman 27 November 1999
