(From the publisher):
Gathered together in the remote County Donegal home of novelist Tom Connolly and his alcoholic wife, Daisy, are David Knight, a visiting scholar who is valuing Tom's manuscripts and, by inference, his work; Garret Fitzmaurice, a commercially successful author whose marriage to the contemptuous Grainne is on the verge of disintegration; and Daisy's parents—her dapper, kleptomaniacal father and embittered, arthritic mother. Absent from the occasion, but palpable in her very absence, is the Connollys' mentally ill daughter, Bridget. In an evening fraught with recriminations, evasions, and painful revelations, a tale of professional rivalry, private despair, marital unhappiness, and sacrifice unfolds. As these wounded souls engage in their self-mocking, acerbic verbal duels, layers of defensive posturing are slowly stripped away, exposing each character's hopes, fears, and fragility, and the uncertainty and self-doubt at the heart of the very human quest for recognition.
