Oranges From Spain is a collection of stories about of the trials of growing up in a community where tension, confusion and violence hold sway. Here, among other tales, a youthful seaside romance crosses the religious divide, a gang take turns at the wheel of a stolen car, and an exceptional student stirs the resentment of her troubled teacher. Set in Northern Ireland against the background of the troubles, these vignettes capture the spirit of adolescence in difficult times.

'Writing I can only describe as magnificent' Irish Times 'Reminicent of the earliest tales of Bernard MacLaverty ... a writer to watch' Scotland on Sunday 'If there has been a better collection than David Park's ORANGES FROM SPAIN in the last year then I fear I have not read it' Daily Telegraph 'Park is an Irish-born writer who brings his celebration of language, and humanity, to every page' Daily Mail
