The Night Side of the Country

by Meagan Delahunt
Publication Date: 01/04/2020
RRP  $24.99 $18.75

It is the Time of the Felled Men.

M, a writer, finds her own past triggered by the constant revelations of misogyny and violence. The novel she is writing stalls. She involves herself in #MeToo and this has consequences – including the threat of litigation.

She retreats to a guesthouse on a holy island (a fictional Iona) and there she encounters B - a woman who may or may not be a figment of her imagination - a woman who may or may not be Irish. This encounter takes M’s novel in a different direction.

B is reckoning with her violent political past in an organisation known as the Movement. B also suffers the consequences of stepping forward in this period. She has been on the run since speaking out against gender violence.

All the way through, the threat looms large: A man may come here. We both know this much.

The novel plays with modes of storytelling to address the central questions: How do we deal with trauma and gender violence? How do we give voice to that which has been unvoiced? How do we heal?

This feminist genre-crossing novel explores the creative process as a place of refuge, ambiguity, and as a starting point for resistance. The place where the ‘You’ and the ‘I’ connect.
