In the blinding morning sunlight, Donal Gore stands in a monastery courtyard. He had travelled to Spain to fight in the Civil War. Captured and awaiting execution, time now slows for him. And he is haunted by memories of his childhood. His was a life of piano lessons, of an unexpected love affair, and of betrayal. And soon he will realise that this story has yet to find its end . . .
SUNRISE WITH SEA MONSTER is a wonderfully moving story of a father and son, and their attempts to understand each other. Written in spare, rich prose, it will be loved by all those who devour his new novel, SHADE.
