"Colin Barrett's sentences are lyrical and tough and smart, but there is something more here that makes him a really good writer. His stories are set in a familiar emotional landscape, but they give us endings that are new. What seems to be about sorrow and foreboding turns into an adventure, instead, in the tender art of the unexpected." (Anne Enright)
"Language, structure, style - Colin Barrett has all the weapons at his disposal, and how, and he has an intuitive sense for what a short story is, and what it can do." (Kevin Barry)
"Colin Barrett is a young man in the town of the short story, but it’s fair to say he has the run of the place. This is a joyously fine collection, crackling with energy and verve, fit for the back pocket of anyone who loves a good story well told." (Jon McGregor)
"Magnificent...A stunning debut... The timeless nature of each story means this collection can - and will - be read many years from now." (Sunday Times (Ireland))
"Incredible... Human violence, beauty, brilliance of language – this book reminds you of the massive things you can do in short fiction." (Evie Wyld)
"Exciting and stylistically adventurous." (Colm Toibín Irish Times)
"Should you be surprised that yet another superbly articulate and word-drunk writer has come out of Ireland? Perhaps not; but when that writer's work is as moving, as funny, as spectacularly evocative as Young Skins, you should be astonished, and amazed, and grateful. Some of the stories in this debut collection are amongst the best in the language. That a young writer possesses a talent this great is a cause for celebration, matched only by his ability to control and harness it. A minute after finishing this book I was itching to read Colin Barrett's next." (Niall Griffiths)
"A new fabulous and forensic voice to sing out Ireland’s woes." (Bernard MacLaverty)
"Colin Barrett is a writer of extraordinary gifts. I loved this compelling and utterly persuasive collection, the strongest debut I've read in some years." (Joseph O'Connor)
Winner of the 2014 frank O'Connor international short story award, winner of the 2014 Rooney prize for irish literature, winner of the 2014 Guardian First Book award.
