9780099535072: The Gathering (Vintage Booker)

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:

"Anne Enright's style is as sharp and brilliant as Joan Didion's; the scope of her understanding is a wide as Alice Munro's; her sympathy for her characters is as tender and subtle as Alice McDermott's; her vision of Ireland is as brave and original as Edna O'Brien's. The Gathering is her best book."

From the Publisher:

A remarkable new novel from one of Ireland's most important and innovative writers.
