Review of "Rambling Jack" by Micheál Ó Conghaile, trans. Katherine Duffy

“Rambling Jack—what’s that?”
“A novel. Novella, I guess.”
“Yeah, it looks short. What is it, a hundred pages?”
“Sorta. It’s a duel language book, so really, only about… 50 pages total.”
“50 pages?”
“Including illustrations.”
“And this—what is it… Dalkey Archive—they want 14 bucks for a 50 page book?”
“Yeah.”
“That’s pretty short.”
“It is, but the book is good. What does it matter how long it is if it’s a good read?”
