Whip-smart, fresh, full of dark humor, virtuosic, and boldly irreverent are just some of the ways readers describe Nicole Flattery’s collection of stories, Show Them a Good Time, about women reacting to the restrictive roles they find themselves in. Fellow Irish author, Colm Tóibín, joins her for a conversation on how she achieved what Sally Rooney calls, “a masterclass in the short story.”
