The Gathering - Anne Enright

Jonathan Cape, 2007, Hardback in Dustwrapper..
Condition: Very Good+ - in Very Good+ DJ.

Winner of the Man Booker Price 2007. From the cover: “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 hat certainly helped it — it was what happened to him as a boy in his grandmother's house, in the winter of 1968. His sister Veronica was there then, as she is now: keeping the dead man company, just for another little while. This 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.” Black boards with Silver titling to the Spine.
