Winner of the Geoffrey Faber Memorial Prize
A beautiful first novel…A remarkable new voice
— The Times (London)
A warm and wise debut from a new literary talent.
Compelling… at once a moving and gracefully etched story of human loss and interconnection set in contemporary Ireland and a deeply affecting meditation on being in the world.
A fine example of the modern Irish novel.
