I love Enda Walsh's writing and am always excited when he has a new play coming out. My only complaint is that some of his plays blend together for me and as a result don't have a distinct effect. That being said, this collection has some of his best plays in my opinion and far make up for some of the less successful ones.

bedbound, How These Desperate Men Talk, and The Small Things are really excellent plays; the remaining four, quality-wise, are more turbulent, and overall far less accomplished.
