Gearrscéalta Gaeilge ón gcoigríoch Seans mór gurb é Gonta an chéad chnuasach gearrscéalta Gaeilge riamh a bhfuil gach ceann de na scéalta ann suite thar lear.

 

Tar éis dom trí no ceithre cinn de na gearrscéalta seo a scríobh, iad ar fad lonnaithe i gcathair Salvador, sa Bhrasaíl, thosaigh amhras ag teacht orm. An mbeadh margadh ann dóibh? Nach raibh litríocht na Gaeilge gafa, go príomhá, leis an saol Fódlach?

Joanna Walsh on Samuel Beckett | berfrois | The Irish Literary Times | Scoop.it
