This double audio cd set, VIRGO OUT LOUD, features a powerful collection of unabridged fiction, most of which is published here for the first time in any form, including: a chilling and prophetic tale from an ex-Communist official in post-Tito Yugoslavia; a novella set in Ireland fifty years after the creation of the Free State, but not too late for revenge; the mythical tale of a shark-man in the Solomon Islands; and the lyrical death-dream of a boy thrown from a bolting horse in southwestern Ontario.

Sean Virgo is one of the world’s finest fiction writers and is also an accomplished stage performer. He’s won the CBC LITERARY COMPETITION twice and the BBC3 SHORT STORY COMPETITION.
