Féilim James was delighted to be included as a Featured Artist in Smashing Times’ Art Connects Newsletter for December. The newsletter, themed ‘Empathy and Recovery’, includes his short story ‘Getting Out’. You can read the entire newsletter here.
‘Getting Out’, from Féilim’s debut collection Strangers, is about a chance meeting on the night-time banks of the Corrib in Galway City. A homeless man tells two young listeners of his trauma, an extreme act of violence from his family’s past that has dogged him ever since. Read the story in full here.
