9780571290864: Time Present and Time Past

A quiet but emotionally resonant portrait of a middle-class family in pre-crash Ireland, Deirdre Madden’s latest novel is understated and gorgeously crafted. Madden touches upon abstract ideas in a clear and accessible way, letting her characters graze past one another even as they search for intimacy and closeness. In tightly controlled prose, this beguiling novel meditates on the passage of time and the futility of memory by dwelling on the actions and preoccupations of everyday people.
