May 2020: The Time Capsule by John O’Donoghue
“They all fell silent for a moment. I could see them trying to look into the future, to imagine themselves as adults, married maybe, perhaps with families of their own, working away in jobs like Uncle Tommy in the Post Office, or Auntie Lizzie in the nursing before she was married, or gone to England, like my mother and father, or even further afield.”
The Time Capsule comes from The King from Over The Water (The Wild Geese Press, 2019).
