9781496007643: Peeling Oranges

Peeling Oranges tells the story of how Derek Foley, while sifting through his late father's diaries and his mother's correspondence with an IRA man, discovers that Patrick Foley, a diplomat in Franco's Spain, was not really his father. Derek's mother, who is ailing, is unwilling to discuss the past, forcing her son on a quest that will plunge him into the early history of Irish diplomacy, taking him to Spain and later to Northern Ireland, until he discovers who his real father was—with tragic consequences. Peeling Oranges is a novel full of personal and political intrigue, fraught with ideology, as it intersects the histories of two emergent nations—Ireland and Spain. It is also a beautiful and lyrically written love story of childhood sweethearts—the apolitical Derek and the passionate nationalist, Sinéad Ní Shúilleabháin.

From the Author:

'Peeling Oranges is a story of a paternal quest interwoven with the histories of the two emergent states of Spain and Ireland. In my research for this novel, I accessed in the National Archive previously unpublished and sometimes censored material about the Irish Civil War and the Spanish Civil War, and it is generally thought this is the first time a novel dealt with early Irish diplomacy as a motif.'

From the Inside Flap:

'A book to lose oneself in. I highly recommend it.'
Gabriel Byrne
