Dirty Sky, by Marsha Swan, Hag's Head Press, €13.
Marsha Swan's debut novel is an anti-tribute to the prairie towns where she spent her childhood. These are the places in the flyover states we hear about once every four years, when presidential candidates come looking for votes.
Her setting is an unnamed slaughterhouse town and its environs; her theme the malaise that has settled over the inhabitants of this isolated, economically depressed place.
