Declan Meade) and in a number of periodicals in the United States, including the The Adirondack Review and The Subterranean Review. In 2004, he was shortlisted for the Davy Byrnes Irish Writing Award. This is his first collection of stories.


'Kevin Barry has produced a collection of vibrant, original, and intelligent short stories, and a number of the tales contained in There Are Little Kingdoms deserve to be read and reread, and to outlast the strange years that made them.' The Irish Times'a brilliant collection of short pieces which showcases both the fine poetry of Barry's language and the deep-seated humanity of his comic ramblings... The characteristic milieu is a small Irish town, usually in the midlands, its denizens scratching out quietly desperate lives as they wait unknowingly for the coming economic boom. Barry understands these micro-societies: he clearly sees their petty-mindedness, jealousy, violence, chicanery, alcoholism and endless nights of hanging around. But he still finds goodness in all possible places, while also presenting these grimy dramas in some of the most beautiful and lyrical writing ever composed by an Irish writer.' - The Irish Examiner
