book cover of Tanglewood


A novel by

Phone the cops or phone Alice. But just don't expect life to ever be the same after you make that call...' When two neighbouring Dublin couples decide to cooperate in building a townhouse that straddles their gardens, they have no idea that its construction will expose the fault lines within their relationships - and lead to a panicked decision one night when the two husbands, Chris and Ronan, are confronted by a situation that could be catastrophic for their families. The consequences of their actions cast these law-abiding men adrift into unknown territory, propelled into a new moral landscape from which it seems impossible to return. Written by a master story-teller, Tanglewood is an incisive dissection of Ireland in 2007, when - unbeknownst to the two couples - the Celtic Tiger edifice is quietly imploding. It is a bittersweet examination of the shimmering tensions, intolerable strains and unbreakable bonds of memory and love that can simultaneously exist within marriage.
