Figure in a Photograph: A Short Story from 'Where Have You Been?'


‘Everyone should try childcare with a hangover. Once.’

Sean Hyland’s wife has left him in Dublin for the weekend, home alone with their infant daughter and teenage son. He has never felt more middle aged... Figure in a Photograph is a tender, funny and quietly poignant story that takes us to the heart of fatherhood and marriage, via skateboards, Jeremy Kyle and ectoplasms of snot.

This story is taken from Where Have You Been?, award-winning novelist Joseph O'Connor's first collection of short stories in more than twenty years.

Ranging from urgently contemporary London and Dublin to New York's Lower East Side in the nineteenth century, from dark comedy to poignancy, from the wryly provocative to the quietly beautiful, Where Have You Been? offers a gathering of dreamers and lost souls who contend with the confusions of living.

An entertaining and life-affirming read from the internationally acclaimed author of Star of the Sea, Redemption Falls and Ghost Light.

The full physical and digital editions will be available on 4th October 2012.
