PAPERBACK
'Brilliant . . . I couldn't stop reading' Jo Spain 'Exceptional . . . Deeply chilling' Jane Casey ______________ Des is a good husband, a good father - a good man. He encourages his wife's artistic endeavours, reads bedtime stories to his children every night, and holds down a well-paid job. But appearances can be deceptive. His wife seems to be forgetting that her art is for his eyes only. Rumours at work are threatening his reputation as a devoted family man. And his kids don't seem to need him as much as they once did. Des is afraid. Afraid of the world encroaching on his home. Afraid of past mistakes catching up with him. So afraid of losing control over his family that he is contemplating the unthinkable. A Good Father is a dark and gripping novel that takes you into the mind of a man on the edge. __________________ 'This intricately made novel marks the debut of a writer from whom, and of whom, we shall be hearing much in coming times' John Banville 'Captivating . . . Readers will come for the premise and stay for its clever unpacking' Irish Times 'A devastating new voice in Irish fiction . . . Magnificent' Joe Duffy 'A great read, it's gripping, at times disturbing' Miriam O'Callaghan, RTÉ Radio 1
