Description
In this second novel from the Irish PEN Award–winning author (and the one that allowed him to become a full-time writer), Eamon Redmond is a judge in Ireland's high court, a man remote from his wife, his son and daughter and, at least outwardly, from his own childhood. The life he has built for himself, between his work in Dublin and his family's retreat by the sea at Cush, is distinguished by order and by achievement. But when, like his beloved coastline, it begins to slip away, he is pulled sharply into the present, and finds himself revisiting his past.

"The novel is narrated dispassionately and with deceptive simplicity, moving between the public figure of the judge in his study and the terrible deaths of childhood.... It is impossible to read Tóibín without being moved, touched and finally changed."—Independent on Sunday (London)
