They mark out the balance and imbalance--the joy and defeat, the darkness of cruelty against the sweet ordinariness of life--in vivid and witty writing which never loses its compassion.' - Eavan Boland, author of In a Time of ViolenceAbout the Author:
Bernard MacLaverty lives in Glasgow, Scotland. His books include Cal and Grace Notes, which was shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize and won the Saltire Scottish Book of the Year Award.
