Live Streaming, Conor O’Callaghan’s first book since The Sun King was rapturously welcomed, is a book of many registers: the recent past’s ‘traumatic quotidian’, the seasons of a caravan park,
a rhapsodic ode to marriage, a schoolboy imagining Petrarch’s love of Laura while praying for a heavyweight title contender.

At its core is ‘His Last Legs’, a collage — prose fragment, dramatic excerpt, transcribed recording — after a nineteenth-century stage Irish farce of the same name. It is a searing account of a family’s relationship with a late father who haunts the whole book.

Live Streaming, the fifth collection from one of contemporary Ireland’s most uncompromisingly restless voices, is a strange and dazzling performance.
