A new collection of short stories from Alex Hijmans.

‘A person leaves a trail in their wake like a boat in the sea or as a comet in the sky. Sápmi left its mark on me and – however small – I left my mark on Sápmi.’

In this collection, Alex Hijmans traces the tracks left by migration on different characters – in London, in Lisbon, in Galway, in Belfast, in Washington D.C. and elsewhere.

Cathal Póirtéir, Books Ireland March/April 2018

‘These are tales of discrimination and isolation, of understanding and misunderstanding, of loneliness and love … Hijmans manages to successfully create credible characters and atmospheric locations in simple and effective prose that sometimes takes Irish-language writing to places where it has never been before. The writing is crisp, clear and fresh throughout, shining new lights on stories of emigration.’
