**Winner of the Man Booker Prize**


The nine surviving children of the Hegarty clan gather in Dublin for the wake of their wayward brother Liam. It wasn't the drink that killed him - although that certainly helped - it was what happened to him as a boy in his grandmother's house, in the winter of 1968.


The Gathering is a novel about love and disappointment, about thwarted lust and limitless desire, and how our fate is written in the body, not in the stars.


‘Enright is a daring writer - witty, original and inventive... Utterly compelling’ Daily Mail


‘Enright ambushes as memory does, drawing you into an event and then questioning its reality’ Sunday Telegraph
