Before that was the tsunami which came after the earthquake. And that was just Japan.” Will this turn of events help an ex-Rose of Tralee win the heart of a slow but genius scientist?“Everything must have contrived to get us to the river that night.” A woman and her philosopher lover grapple with their move to a new country.“The food was blue. Too blue. I said it out loud by mistake. Slap of a car, tore me down, left me for dead.” A boy pays a high price to be cool.“Dad tuts to himself - not, apparently, at the splotch, but at the untimely interference of the women.” Some spilt Bordeaux makes an impression on New Year’s Eve.
