Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

A dazzling writer of international stature, Anne Enright is one of Irelands most singular voices. Now she delivers The Gathering, a return to an intimate canvas and a moving, evocative portrait of a large Irish family haunted by the past. The nine surviving children of the Hegarty clan are gathering in Dublin for the wake of their wayward brother, Liam, drowned in the sea. His sister, Veronica, collects the body and keeps the dead man company, guarding the secret she shares with him—something that happened in their grandmothers house in the winter of 1968. As Enright traces the line of betrayal and redemption through three generations, she shows how memories warp and secrets fester. As in all Enrights work, her distinctive intelligence twists the world a fraction, and gives it back to us in a new and unforgettable light.
