As life and fantasy interweave between Dublin, Wexford, Berlin and
Barcelona, Tess and Mungo consummate their love through tales which are
erotic, exotic and often guilt-ridden, confronting truths about
themselves, and restoring the fabric of a torn past.
'A deeply accomplished first novel. Casey has a penetrating eye for the
stuff of everyday relationships and the compassion to turn the ordinary
into compelling and vivid fiction.'
'The emotions explored are deep and serious, the characters get all our
sympathy ... a stunningly truthful and perfectly pitched novel'
'This is a passionate, erotic mature novel that displays many of the
virtues which contemporary Irish fiction so conspicuously lacks: an
intelligent vision of an adult relationship coupled with an intelligent
vision of contemporary Irish Society ... a supple prose style which is a
constant joy to read.'
'Casey has an uncanny ability to portray the needy fragility and boundless
imaginative desire of a woman's unfolding sexuality.'
'Mortally angelic writing by a man that understands as no one else does the
seam of gold and revelation in the strict greys of the mundane'
