About this title


Set in contemporary Dublin, the story of Tess and Mungo, two ordinary people whose lives become intertwined after a chance meeting on a bridge. The relationship that develops extends the horizon of their lives on the dole, struggling with children, filled with sexual longing, and hungry for purpose. A novel about love and parenthood, desire and fraility, ""stunningly truthful and perfectly pitched."" - Colm Toibin.

From the Back Cover:

Tess and Mungo bump into each other on the Ha'penny Bridge over the Liffey and quickly contrive to make their paths cross again. Then, as people do, they start to see each other more often... As they begin to talk about themselves and their backgrounds, they feel compelled to invent stories of lives very different from their own. Both have children and marriages - but not love - on the dole in contemporary Dublin. Both are aware that the fables they tell one another are just that - fabulous tales designed to present the teller in a more seductive light. Gradually, they become drawn in by each other's stories. Talking, loving and weaving tales - exotic, sexual and guilt-ridden - they stoke the fires of a burgeoning affair.
