The Swimmers Review on RTE

It’s a wonderful surprise when you’re looking online for something and you come along a review of your work, even a brief mention. Below is a review of my short story on the RTE website. If you follow that link you can read a review of the other stories in the anthology too.

“Paul McVeigh’s The Swimmers skirts in a sly, punctilious way around the subject of molestation without ever making it explicit. An eager-to-please dad elects, with perhaps too much enthusiasm, to drive young teenage lads to a swimming baths on a regular basis as his own son tries to come to terms with his fear of water.”
