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.

"It is clearly the product of a remarkable intelligence, combined with a gift for observation and deduction" -- A. L. Kennedy * Guardian *
"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 its reality" * Sunday Telegraph *
