About this book
Paperback edition of the latest novel from the Man Booker Prize winning author of "The Gathering". Set in Dublin in 2009, it follows Gina, who recollects her long affair with a married man. 'An achingly brilliant piece of writing on passion and delusion... This book is enough to restore your faith in the power of fiction' Viv Groskop, "Independent"
If it hadn't been for the child then none of this might have happened. She saw me kissing her father. She saw her father kissing me. The fact that a child got mixed up in it all made us feel that it mattered, that there was no going back.
