Moments: Irish Women Writers in Aid of the Tsunami Victims
Edited by Ciara Considine
Published by CLÉ, the Irish Book Publishers' Association in 2005

The perfect book for reading between those dips in the pool, the Med or the more invigorating waters of Clare’s beaches, Moments features 39 short stories by Ireland’s top women writers.

The writers were given one common theme: moments of change. From births and deaths to every kind of moment in between, change is explored in its many guises. Here are tales of love endings and new beginnings; of plots hatched and plans foiled; of small events that shake foundations, and momentous happenings that reaffirm the basics. Moments of life that engage, move, challenge and renew.

From moments of poignancy to occasions of laughter, this eclectic and appealing mixture from bestselling authors such as Maeve Binchy and Cecelia Ahern and newcomers such as Breda Wall Ryan provides a taste of the best of Ireland’s contemporary women writers.

The full cover price of the book goes directly to tsunami affected regions via the Irish charity GOAL. Everyone involved with this book, from authors to publishers to distributors, has volunteered their services for free. So if you enjoy this book, go out and buy one for a friend. You’ll be giving an engrossing read as well as supporting a good cause.
