9780099501633: The Gathering

The nine surviving children of the Hegarty clan gather in Dublin for the wake of their wayward brother Liam. It wasn't the drink that killed him - although that certainly helped - it was what happened to him as a boy in his grandmother's house, in the winter of 1968.

The Gathering is a novel about love and disappointment, about thwarted lust and limitless desire, and how our fate is written in the body, not in the stars.

Review:

"It is clearly the product of a remarkable intelligence, combined with a gift for observation and deduction" (A. L. Kennedy Guardian)

"She beautifully describes the way hurt can be inherited... Enright is a daring writer - witty, original and inventive... Utterly compelling" (Eithne Farry Daily Mail)

"A welcome return, for this writer, to novel form, and as a fresh, sophisticated take on the ever-popular dysfunctional family saga" (Eve Patten Irish Times)

"Anne Enright has all she needs in terms of imagination and technique and she's a tremendous phrase maker" (Adam Mars-Jones Observer)

"Enright ambushes as memory does, drawing you into an event and then questioning it's reality" ( Sunday Telegraph)

From the Publisher:

This is the remarkable new novel from one of Ireland's most important and innovative writers
