Very Like A Whale
Apr 25, 2018
Vivid, moving novel of a family in the pre-Celtic Tiger era Dublin of the 1980s, when the city was wracked by poverty, drug abuse and crime. Young teacher Ben returns after four years abroad and strives to re-engage with his family - his parents who have separated and are navigating their newly independent lives, and his once-wild sister who has settled into middle-class comfort - and trying to revive a lost romance.
