The debut collection from the White Review short story prize winner.

An urgent and unforgettable collection of stories, Show Them a Good Time explores types - men and women, their assigned roles and meanings - in modern society.

A young, broke Irish woman narrates her relationship with a successful comedian in New York; two hapless university students take to the stage in a bid to assert their autonomy; a schoolteacher makes her way through a series of dead-end dates, gamely searching for love or distraction as the world teeters towards ruin.

The characters in these magnificently accomplished stories are haunted as much by the future as they are by their pasts. Exuberant, irreverent and loaded with dark humour, Show Them a Good Time marks the arrival of a strikingly original new voice in fiction.

Ce que les critiques en disent

"I truly love and admire Nicole Flattery’s writing. Show Them a Good Time is a masterclass in the short story - bold, irreverent and agonisingly funny - and it does full justice to its author’s immense talent." (Sally Rooney)

"Exhilarating. Flattery’s judgments crackle with cruel, clear sight...Flattery writes with empathy, freedom and virtuosic technique: this debut announces the arrival of a brilliant talent." (Financial Times)

"If tradition is the kitchen sink, Flattery removes it from the wall, smashes it to pieces, and dances all over it with delight. With a literary voice that is as sophisticated and erudite as it is spiky and hilarious, Flattery has taken the short story format into an exciting, energetic, and multifaceted dimension." (Sunday Independent)

Dry and quirky

This was a nice, short collection of stories. I don't usually read short stories via Audible, but this one was great. The narrator was dry and quirky like the characters. The writing was original and funny (although I wouldn't categorize this as humor, and unlike other reviews, wouldn't call it 'hilarious'). Some of the stories just seemed to end, but I enjoyed the ride so much that I didn't mind it. All of them felt like a special look behind the curtain at a completely unique person. I expect I'll be reading this again just to feel the vibes.
