In this new and eagerly awaited novel from one of Ireland’s most accomplished writers, John MacKenna explores the complecities of love, friendship, loss and betrayal. When a man loses his wife in a car accident and is left to raise his young daughter alone, his emotions lurch from relief to guilt; relief because his marriage had been falling apart for some time, and guilt because he did not have the courage to admit this while his wife was alive. A powerful yet shocking story that asks if we can ever truly know those we are closest to, or if the space between us is always greater than we realise.
Praise for John MacKenna:
‘His stories are imbued with an intense eroticism which sharpens the character’s memories and softens the harsh Irish landscapes in which they live’ – The Sunday Times
‘A writer whose emotional success rarely falters’ – The Irish Times
‘A consummately skilled author’ – The Guardian
‘His restrained, limpid style and rural settings are reminiscent of McGahern’ – The Irish Times
