Another fine story by Keegan, deeply humane. This time the story is written from the point of view of a married father of five girls. Both Foster and Small Things Like These are set in Ireland, by the way, and Small Things is about 2 hours long, so a little more to enjoy. The time of year is Christmastime. Brrr…it’s cold. No warming your toes here, except by a fire. In fact, our main character makes a living by delivering wood and coal to his neighbors. Well, that’s all I’ll say. Glad to have spent 2 hours with his churning thoughts.
