Martin MacIntyre

Ath-Aithne (Re-acquaintance) is Martin MacIntyre's debut collection of short stories which won the Saltire Society First Book Award upon its publication in 2003. Love, war, death, passion, belonging, identity, uncertainty, desire, tragedy and joy are just some of the themes which are skilfully explored in this thrilling collection. Whether in Aldershot, Uist, Glasgow, Nicaragua or elsewhere, the characters are brought to life with intelligence, passion and humour.

The Irish translation of Ath-Aithne was published together with the Irish translation of Duncan Gillies's short story collection Tocasaid 'Ain Tuirc.
