About this title

Synopsis:

“Bernard MacLaverty’s powerful novel is a love story as affecting and tragic as you could want.”―USA Today

When it was first published, Bernard MacLaverty’s masterpiece was hailed by Michael Gorra in the New York Times Book Review as “a marvel of technical perfection . . . a most moving novel whose emotional impact is grounded in a complete avoidance of sentimentality. . . . [It] will become the Passage to India of the Troubles.”

For Cal, a Belfast teenager who, against his will, is involved in the terrible war between Catholics and Protestants, some of the choices are devastatingly simple: he can work in the slaughterhouse that nauseates him or join the dole queue; he can brood on his past or plan a future with the beautiful, widowed Marcella for whose grief he shares more than a little responsibility.

“A formidable fictional triumph.”―Observer

“A hard, dark gemstone of a book.”―Cleveland Plain Dealer

About the Author:
