Summer Reads

Hardcover. Bookplate signed by the author tipped in. At the former home of the sculptor Robert Locke, Nessa, a gallery employee, is struggling to manage Eleanor and Loretta Locke, the sculptor's widow and middle-aged daughter. Meanwhile, her marriage is floundering in the aftermath of her husband's affair, and she's becoming increasingly alienated from her teenage daughter. At this worst possible time, her past resurfaces in the form of Caroline Ferriter, a woman she once shared a flat with in London. Caroline is in contact with the son of their long-dead flatmate, Amy, who killed herself at the age of 24. Luke, Amy's son, is coming to Ireland in an attempt to understand something of the person his mother was. At the last minute, Paul, Luke's father, whom Nessa was once briefly involved with, invites himself along too. Things become only more complicated once the two men arrive in Ireland and when an American woman, Melanie, comes forward to claim that she, and not Eleanor, was Locke's muse for his best known piece, the Chalk Sculpture, things really start to spiral out of control.

Hardback. {youtube}kVNP-rhsHY4{/youtube}Signed by the author. Special Edition with exclusive content in the form of a short story not available in the regular edition - 'The Possibility of Snow' The difference between a victim and survivor is the ability to tell your story. Eighteen-year-old Debbie lives on a dairy farm in Kildare with her mother and her uncle Billy who lives in a caravan in the garden. Who knows what happened to Billy's dreams, but now his company is a bottle of whiskey and the stars that hang overhead. Debbie's mum Maeve's grip on reality is increasingly tenuous, and she spends her days recording her dreams, which are more real than her daylight hours. This world is Debbie's normal, but she is about to step into life as a university student in Dublin. There she meets Xanthe and a new gang of friends, finding it increasingly difficult to navigate between the world of home, and her new life, coming to see that sometimes even the maddest of families are our real places of safety.
