Praise for Modern Times:

"Cathy Sweeney's stories have already attracted a band of fanatical devotees, and this first collection is as marvellous as we could have hoped for. A unique imagination, a brilliant debut." —Kevin Barry

“I loved this collection. It vibrates with a glorious strangeness! Magnificently weird, hugely entertaining, deeply profound.” —Danielle McLaughlin

“Cathy Sweeney's work is jaw-droppingly good: inventive, funny, lush. One of the best short story writers working today.” —Sinéad Gleeson

“In Modern Times, Cathy Sweeney gives us fables of the present that are funny, vertiginous and melancholy.” —David Hayden
