‘Witty, original, inventive…utterly compelling’ Daily Mail

Winner of the Man Booker Prize

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.

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