Product details

Product description


"Remarkable ... will stay with you long after you read the last page." (Claire Messud)

"Deeply moving ... I was engrossed by the elegant plotting and intelligent writing ... I was, simply, moved to tears" (Patrick Ness Guardian)

"Rich, evocative prose reminiscent of Marilynne Robinson ... loaded with emotional resonance." (Observer)

"Beautiful ... subtle, sharp and truthful" (The Times)

"An outstanding novel ... the emotional power is relentless. A sense of longing courses through the narrative, yet the irony of the title is well served; this is an intelligent, reserved novel, and is all the more moving for the restrained dignity that conveys not only the regrets but also the anger... an allusive, intelligent and solemn work" (Eileen Battersby Irish Times)

Book Description

"A remarkably poised novel about a young woman reckoning with her dying alcoholic father, a veteran of the Vietnam war living in Canada with the father of a fallen comrade."
