Never Love a Gambler
Fiction by Keith Ridgway
Marvelous stories by the Irish writer acclaimed by Zadie Smith as idiosyncratic and fascinating
Beckett-like emptiness that gnaws at the conscience … Ridgway has clearly arrived to trouble our sleep with wit and violence.
Ridgway’s work is a pillar of hurt and intrigue for everyone who likes language, parable, story, world-making, writing.
The keen sense of place and lucid, pared-down prose of a good crime novel, which makes the more outlandish deviations even more arresting.
Idiosyncratic and fascinating.
