Maria C McCarthy’s As Long as it Takes is now available to order from Cultured Llama. This is ahead of publication on 1 February 2014.
Maria will be launching the book with a number of events, starting on 12 February at the University of Kent. There are also events on 1 March at the pART project, Sittingbourne, a book signing at Jittermugs, Faversham on St Patrick’s Day, 17 March (personal readings on request!), and Maria will be the guest of Save As Writers in Canterbury on 12 April.
Here’s what Susan Wicks has to say about As Long as it Takes. Each story stands alone, but when read together…
…characters recur and situations illuminate one another, so that when we read them together we find ourselves inside the story of a whole community of Irish immigrants, suddenly faced, as the protagonists are, with the tellingly displaced expectations and longings of a generation of women and their legacy to the generations that succeeded them.
