InstaReview: Small Things Like These by Claire Keegan

"It seemed both proper and at the same time deeply unfair that so much of life was left to chance."

Small Things Like These is a mesmerizing novella about a man forced to make a choice in the face of inhumanity and untold consequences. The story is set in a struggling Irish town and reveals Ireland’s dark history of Magdalene Laundries. Claire Keegan captivates with her quiet and purposeful prose and leaves the reader questioning, what would you do in the face of this moral dilemma?
