A special celebratory edition to mark the 21st birthday of Vintage books.

The nine surviving children of the Hegarty clan gather in Dublin for the wake of their wayward brother Liam. It wasn’t the drink that killed him – although that certainly helped – it was what happened to him as a boy in his grandmother’s house, in the winter of 1968. The Gathering is a novel about love and disappointment, about thwarted lust and limitless desire, and how our fate is written in the body, not in the stars.

About the Author

Anne Enright was born in Dublin, where she now lives and works. She has published one collection of stories, The Portable Virgin, which won the Rooney Prize, and three novels, The Wig My Father Wore, What Are You Like? – shortlisted for the Whitbread Novel Award and winner of the Encore Award – and The Pleasure of Eliza Lynch. Her first work of non-fiction, Making Babies: Stumbling into Motherhood, was published in 2004.

"It is clearly the product of a remarkable intelligence, combined with a gift for observation and deduction" -- A. L. Kennedy Guardian "She beautifully describes the way hurt can be inherited... Enright is a daring writer - witty, original and inventive... Utterly compelling" -- Eithne Farry Daily Mail "A welcome return, for this writer, to novel form, and as a fresh, sophisticated take on the ever-popular dysfunctional family saga" -- Eve Patten Irish Times "Anne Enright has all she needs in terms of imagination and technique and she's a tremendous phrase maker" -- Adam Mars-Jones Observer "Enright ambushes as memory does, drawing you into an event and then questioning it's reality" Sunday Telegraph
