Winner of the Juniper Prize for Fiction short stories.
From the Publisher:
Inhabiting a world that offers no guarantee of any veracity, the characters in these peculiar stories are driven to and goaded by compulsive and perhaps pointless reflection. They are haunted by unrelenting consciousness and knowledge of failure, yet are, at best, ambivalent toward any conventional equation of success. Theirs is a world of broken relationships, futile memory, constant appetite, and the certain knowledge that they are winding down in a culture in which it is impossible to do-or know-the right thing. Frustrated and obsessed, they cannot articulate their lives and are entranced by the strangeness of the everyday.||Written with keen intelligence and biting humor, Carbine is a book about the ridiculousness of contemporary life-a book about what cannot be said.

Praise

"In these 41 brief, surprising stories, Mulcahy mines everyman's deep sense of failure and spiritual alienation....[He] packs a surprising amount of power into each of these understated and beautifully wrought pieces." (starred review) 04/26/2010
