Dinner Party

by Sarah Gilmartin | 16 September 2021
Paperback
Category: Irish Fiction

An exhilarating and heart-rending novel about family, and all the ways we try
- and fail - to escape them

Kate meticulously plans a dinner to mark the anniversary of a death in the
family, from the fancy table setting to the perfect baked alaska waiting in the
freezer. But by the end of the night, dessert is in the bin, the guests are
gone, and Kate is spinning out of control.
Set over four periods from the 1990s to the present day, between Carlow and
Dublin, the family farmhouse and Trinity College, DINNER PARTY is a
beautifully observed, dark and twisty novel that thrillingly unravels into past
family secrets and tragedy. Kate is coming to terms both with what it means
to be a survivor, as well as a longstanding battle with anorexia.
Haunting and unforgettable, DINNER PARTY explores, in searing detail, how
the past informs the present, the inevitability of childhood damage
resurfacing in later life - and yet, how despite everything, we can't help
returning home.
