These are without doubt strange pieces, and they are strangely effective. How better to articulate the atrocities of the Troubles and the devastation of child abuse than through the horror genre? Hilary Mantel did it in Beyond Black, in which a rape victim, now a psychic by trade, literally lives with demons. Mantel didn't sanitise the aftermath of abuse, and nor does McCabe, for this isn't Alice Sebold's Lovely Bones, narrated from heaven and suffused with redemption. These are the Bones of Patrick McCabe: stark, fierce, and wonderful.
 
Over his distinguished career, McCabe has probably written too much fiction for his own good. Sometimes this has damaged his reputation. But this latest offering is a rewarding experience which sees the master of the Irish gothic genre return to his best form in years.
