Meet The Author

Noel King was born and lives in Tralee, County Kerry. His poetry collections are published by Salmon: Prophesying the Past (2010), The Stern Wave (2013) and Sons (2015). He has edited more than fifty books of work by others (Doghouse Books, 2004-2013) and was poetry editor of Revival Literary Journal (Limerick Writers’ Centre) in 2012/13. He also enjoys acting and singing in amateur plays and musical theatre, and in the odd film. He was once a Bunratty Castle entertainer. The Key Signature & Other Stories is his debut collection of fiction.

The nineteen stories in this book concern the trials of modern man in an Ireland of the late twentieth and early twenty-first century. Each first-person narrator is grappling with something: host family father falling in love with the au pair, cross-dressing husband unleashing his grief and his vices after the funeral of his beloved wife, Men’s Shed participant falling in love with another male attendee. The Key Signature is a superb debut collection of stories from a fine poet and actor.
