Patrick McCabe (introduction to Red Lamp Black Piano).

An anthology of fiction, poetry, prose and humour from some of the motley and talented artists who have participated in the alternative arts event, The Cáca Milis Cabaret. The book’s spirited introduction, written by Patrick McCabe, is well in keeping with the philosophy of the show.

Likewise, the format of the book, which  juxtaposes established and emerging talent, presenting genres from short stories and poetry to satire and humour. For full list of contributors, please scroll down.

The book blends work by writers and poets from the current emerging Irish writing and spoken word scene with contributions from more established artists such as Dermot Bolger, Emer Martin or Eoin Colfer.
