New Island Books - 25 Years a-Growing

We Are Gold

We Are Gold


Hannah Gold, 23, dies in a car crash on a cold February morning.

Daughter of Rose and Henry Gold. Sister of Omega and Dawn. Mother of Jack.

Rose seeks relief in her daily poems, while Henry retreats into a state of suspended reality. Meanwhile, Omega seems intent on finding new and improved ways to lose his wife and job, while Dawn’s crash course experiment in love follows her home with a Spanish accent. As if losing themselves all the way from Bull Island to Paris isn’t enough, little Jack has developed a fishy obsession with his auntie’s letters!

Alice Chambers’ debut novel is an achingly funny and profoundly moving examination of grief. A story where coping with death means living your life and moving forward means looking right beside you.

Praise for We are Gold:

‘A solid gold debut…a refreshing debut… a refreshing look at grief’ Sunday Tribune
