Where Have You Been? is award-winning novelist Joseph O'Connor's first collection of short stories in more than 20 years. Ranging from urgently contemporary London and Dublin to New York's Lower East Side in the 19th century, from dark comedy to poignancy, from the wryly provocative to the quietly beautiful, these stories offer a gathering of dreamers and lost souls who contend with the confusions of living. Here are men without women, children parenting parents, residents of the uncertain country that is post-boom Ireland, emigrants, travellers, cheats and lovers, families, friends, and foes.

Where Have You Been? Is a powerfully moving, entertaining and life-affirming listen, from the internationally acclaimed author of Star of the Sea, Redemption Falls and Ghost Light.

    " A wise author tells of a wise owl is asking one very wise question. Where have the animals of the forest been? Children enjoy hearing this predictable read aloud repetitively. Ask Pre-K to Kindergarten to predict where each animal has been-- hinting to words that rhyme. "

    " Nice pictures, even though I don't really go in for all that Waldorf fairy stuff. But the prose is repetitive yet creative and the pictures add a nice surprise. "

    " I have had this book since I was a little girl. Margaret made animals sweetly magical. The drawings are simple and good in my version which is over 40 years old. "

    " Impulse grab at the library. Not one of either Brown's or the Dillon's best efforts, but maybe children would get more out of it than I did. It seemed mostly cliched to me. I did like the Mole's page, and even more the Lion's, but they didn't save the book imo. "

    " This book reminds me a lot of Eric Carl's Brown Bear Brown Bear What do you see? I like it because it is fun and has a lot of descriptive actions. "

    " This sort of reminds me of Brown Bear, Brown Bear, I like the illutstrations, but I don't think I would use it in a story time "
