Edna O'Brien - Wild Decembers (2nd Hand Hardback)
When a young man arrives from Australia to claim his inheritance, he changes a small Irish town for ever.
Joseph Brennan sees Michael Bugler, the returned exile, as a threat. And for Breege, Joseph's younger sister, Bugler is an irresistible stranger to whose charms she must not succumb to for fear of betraying her brother.
A classic drama ensues, involving the full range of bonds and betrayals and leavened by the human comedy of which Edna O'Brien rarely loses sight.
A love-hate story on many levels, Wild Decembers explores the depth and darkness at the root of all ownership.
With a rich and comic cast of characters, this primal story is a complex and daring work, fixed in a time and place, yet imbued with the permanence of myth.
