Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

With a mood akin to WUTHERING HEIGHTS--and indeed the spirit of Emily Bronte (Irish Times), Edna O'Brien's critically acclaimed novel WILD DECEMBERS charts the quick but sure demise of relations between the warring sons of warring sons. Here in the countryside of western Ireland, ancient feuds, romantic passions, and misguided ideas of fidelity blend together in . . . a] heartbreaking story (Wall Street Journal) leavened by the human comedy of which O'Brien rarely loses sight. A sister, a brother, and a stranger converge in a classic triangle, proceeding inevitably toward a climax that is Irish to the quick, violent and sad and, in a strange way, beautiful. Just like the novel itself (Washington Post).

WILD DECEMBERS is a triumphant work from a writer who wears well the mantle of her Irish forebears and yet who, with each new novel, breaks new ground all her own. In this, her latest, readers could not ask for a more profoundly satisfying book (Boston Herald).

Synopsis:

When a young man arrives from Australia to claim his inheritance he changes a small Irish town forever. Joseph Brennan sees Michael Bugler, the returned exile, as a threat, but Joseph's sister sees him as an irresistible stranger to whose charms she must not succumb.

Synopsis:

A novel of revenge, murder and the darkness at the root of all ownership. The arrival of a young Australian, to some an irresisitible stranger, to others a threat, to claim land and his inheritance changes a small Irish town, and its rich and comic cast of characters, forever.
