WINNER OF THE AN POST IRISH BOOK AWARD FOR SHORT STORY OF THE YEAR 2023

‘ONE OF MY FAVOURITE STORYTELLERS. THESE TALES LINGERED, MORPHED, CONSUMED ME’
KIRAN MILLWOOD HARGRAVE

‘QUEER, HORNY, GORY, FANTASTICAL STORIES THAT GAVE ME SERIOUS WRITER ENVY’
KIRSTY LOGAN


The belly-groan of a face unpeeled. A break-up poem recited knee-deep in bog water. An ancient burial mound rising and falling like a chest. The ghost of Stephen Gately reading the ingredients on a ham and cheese sandwich.

Startling, sinister and irresistibly joyful, Moïra Fowley’s debut collection unravels all of our darkest impulses and deepest fears.

‘SUCH A WITTY, AFFECTING, FRESH BOOK: I WAS DELICIOUSLY HORRIFIED’
JENN ASHWORTH

Reviews

'Fowley's themes of sex, desire and destruction are presented, often skillfully, using a wide variety of genre fiction tropes, and with an adult clarity and viscerality'
The Guardian
Queer, horny, gory, fantastical stories that gave me serious writer envy
Kirsty Logan, author of NOW SHE IS WITCH
Fowley's delight in the sinister and erotic will no doubt entertain and engage many readers
Guardian
Such a witty, affecting, fresh book: I was deliciously horrified
Jenn Ashworth, author of GHOSTED
If fantasy is your thing, you'll like this book. If 'queer fiction' is also your thing, then you'll definitely like this book. Merging fantasy and queer fiction is the very stuffing of this work, where ancient mythical queens roam ancient hills, keeping watch over their respective territories, lovers eat each other (not figuratively speaking but literally - like oysters), there are monsters hiding in unlikely places and flowers fall from the sky.
Meath Chronicle
Fowley's writing is joyous and poetic . . . Contemporary gothic short stories at their best, Eyes Guts Throat Bones is written so beautifully that even the most squeamish reader would be sucked in by it
Mslexia
Eyes Guts Throat Bones by Moïra Fowley is exactly the kind of embodied writing I've wanted to read for a long time
Ali Millar, author of THE LAST DAYS
One of my favourite storytellers. These tales lingered, morphed, consumed me
Kiran Millwood Hargrave, author of THE MERCIES
An incredible and unique imagination
Irish Times
Fowley flips the script on what we are used to seeing in apocalyptic fiction and media: a man and a woman navigating their relationship at the end of the world. Instead, we see how queer love is everywhere, pervading even through the most dire of circumstances
Ghouls Magazine
Fowley's writing is joyous and poetic
Mslexia
Lest ye ever be in doubt about the power of language, take a spin through Eyes Guts Throat Bones, Moira Fowley's visceral collection of short stories "about (queer, female) bodies at the end of the world"
Buzz Magazine
