This text tells the tale of the struggle of Donegal girl Norah Ryan against poverty at the turn of the century. The name is from a lodging house where human beings, pinched and poverty-stricken and ground down with a weight of oppression, are hemmed up like the plague-stricken in a pest-house.

Review:

A restrained poetic vision overshadowed only by MacGill's passionate hatred of the gombeen men and the grasping Catholic clergy who people its pages. --Sunday Express

Penned with chilling realism, a heartrending transcript from life. --Cork Examiner
