There is a major flaw in the slim volume of short stories entitled, Sleepwalkers; you turn the last page long before you're ready for the joy to end. It was such a disappointment that my only recourse was to begin again on page one.

I read 'Sleepwalkers' during my stay in Ireland this summer and it has been a wonderful travelling companion. Bernie Mcgill's style is both powerful and warm-hearted. Each story exploring these moments in life of love, loss or illness. Moments of transformation and (re)construction of the self and of our relation to the world and to the people that surround us. Highly recommanded.

I went NUTS over Butterfly Cabinet, and am admittedly not a fan of short stories but of course I had to read it - and if you liked Butterfly Cabinet, you should, too.

That said, you can for sure tell that this is earlier work.

No matter - can't wait to see what she writes next!
