Read Kevin Barry’s ‘A cruelty’

A cruelty‘, a terribly strong story by short fiction rock star Kevin Barry, is up for your reading pleasure at the Literary Hub. It’s quite short, but it should achieve an unholy amount of messing with your little mind.

I was lucky enough to hear it read by the man himself before reading it, and heck can Barry read. He’s one writer that is really worth seeing ‘live’, so don’t miss him if he ever comes roaming by your neck of the backwoods.

(‘A cruelty’ is from the collection Dark lies the island, available in all good bookshops)
