Synopsis: Set in the hills of Northern Ireland in the 1960s and 1970s, A Son Called Gabriel is a deeply felt and often funny coming-of-age novel that is ultimately unforgettable. Gabriel Harkin, the eldest of four children in a working-class family, struggles through a loving yet often brutal childhood. It’s a turbulent time in Ulster, and in the staunchly Catholic community to which Gabriel belongs, the rigid code for belief and behavior is clear. As Gabriel begins to suspect that he’s not like other boys, he tries desperately to lock away his feelings, and his fears. But secrets have a way of being discovered, and Gabriel learns that his might not be the only one in the Harkin family.

From the Publisher: When CDS Books first announced its publishing program almost a year ago, one of our goals was to publish strong literary and commercial fiction, but we were determined to wait until we found just the right author and just the right book.

When we read A SON CALLED GABRIEL, we knew our patience had been rewarded. The manuscript made its way around the office with lightening speed, and each new response was more enthusiastic than the last. GABRIEL'S author, Damian McNicholl, came into the office to meet us; his spirit, intelligence, and sparkling Northern Irish accent clinched it for us. We had no choice but to publish A SON CALLED GABRIEL and share this striking new writer with the world.

The novel weaves together two compelling story lines: Gabriel's struggle to come to terms with who he is throughout a loving but often brutal childhood, and a family mystery that Gabriel intuitively senses but cannot solve. Both issues are intrinsically related to growing up Catholic in a small town in Northern Ireland. But it is Gabriel's voice; honest, funny, and entirely alive, that resonates long after the book ends.
