The Wooden Hill

Short Story Collection

'The Wooden Hill' (Epoque Press) is now available in bookstores and online!

'Jamie Guiney's stories feel like classics read by the fireside on dark, winter nights. Tales of ordinary people and their everyday lives are illuminated and elevated by Guiney's keen eye and gentle empathy.' Paul McVeigh

'Evocative, lyrical and touching. The Wooden Hill is a stunning collection. Under Jamie Guiney's pen the smallest detail becomes cinematic; characters breathe; landscapes live. Intensely personal, unflinchingly human, these stories are to savour, lingering long after the end.' Miranda Dickinson
