Description:

SIGNED. Slight edgewear to book, a 1" scuff to front board lower edge. Slight shelfwear to DJ and sunning to DJ spine. Faint pipe aroma. Silver lettering to spine, navy cloth-covered boards. Very clean, tight, bright. 336 pp. "Thirty-six-year-old Jamie Mangan, a failed poet and sometimes journalist, has suddenly and tragically been set free from his seven-year, childless marriage to a beautiful and successful actress of stage and screen." So off he goes to Ireland to discover his ancestry, but finds more than he bargained for. "The Mangan Inheritance is at once a mystery, a tale of passion and ambition, a search for roots, and a splendid evocation of the mist-drenched Irish landscape and its denizens. A story that is compellingly readable and uninterruptedly spellbinding.". Bookseller Inventory #

Synopsis: Thirty-six-year-old Jamie Mangan, an unsuccessful poet and sometime journalist, discovers that he may be descended from James Clarence Mangan, a drinkand drug-taking bohemian Irish poet of a century and a half ago, and sets out to investigate his ancestry

From the Publisher: 'The Mangan Inheritance is a marvellous book. The storytelling is faultless and I have read no book recently that had in greater measure that quality for which no superior word need be sought but "unputdownability"... a superb product of the imagination.' - Paul Ableman, Spectator

'A passionately detailed and evocative work ... what's exceptionally good is the way it sustains the powerful, simple idea of the quest inside the worrying, edgy details of a modern life.' - Hermione Lee, Observer

'Brian Moore is a highly intelligent writer who has the enviable ability to make you want to go on turning the pages.' - A. N. Wilson, Evening Standard

'Moore is one of the boldest and most inventive contemporary novelists.' - Literary Review
