"THE 10 BEST NOVELS SINCE THE TURN OF THE CENTURY!" — Comhar
A sparingly written account of the two years spent by three young people together, from the arrival of the stranger to the parting of companions. In the words of the female narrator, 'Maurice was prudent. Add to that my romantic view, and George's tragic view, and you have three sides of our small triangle'.
Liz is twenty seven years old and has been quite successful in life. She has a good husband, a son and a daughter, and they live in a comfortable house by the river in a coastal town not far from the city. Yet, she is bored, or thinks she is.
Everyone is more knowledgable about themselves by the end of the book... A direct, sparce style that carries the feelings she expresses.- Alan Titley, RnaG
Ní Anluain's ability to catch day-to-day life and nuanced feeling is enviable, and she has created a very contemporary dialect.... Here is an accomplished author. One looks forward to her next book. - Pól Ó Muirí, The Irish Times
A realistic, lyrical, literary novel. It was worth waiting for. - Angela Bourke, Comhar.
Rud nach bhfuil déanta ag mórán úrscéalaithe Gaeilge .i. an teannas sa saol pósta agus an caidreamh idir dhaoine a léiriú. Míreanna an-láidir sa scéal a mheabhraíonn Virginia Woolf agus Simone de Beauvoir dom. Léirítear ann aigne agus íogair an tráchtaire go seoigh. — Diarmuid Ó Gráinne
Guth nua le scéal síoraí, á insint le fuaimint ag fíorscéalaí. Beidh do chroí i mbarra do mhéire agat agus an scéal taibhseach seo á léamh agat. — Seán Mac Mathúna
