Requiem

(1991)
A novel by

 
Rising above her status as a world-renowned children's author, Berlie Doherty's first truly adult novel probes the tragi-comedy of Irish convent Catholicism with a rare power and sensitivity that continues to disturb long after the reader has finished. The story of Cecilia's adolescence is exquisitely told in a style both economic and exuberant. There are moments of near-Joycean epiphany ... the plot is tight and the narrative startling. Doherty writes in, and even beyond, the best tradition of Irish lyricism, to explore the extremes of sacrifice and sin, love and rejection.
This Edition has been completely reworked and redesigned for autumn 2014.
