Book of the month – January

The first Sunday in September by Tadhg Coakley

It’s the day of the All-Ireland Hurling Final.  A hungover Clareman goes to Dublin, having remortgaged his house and bet the last of the money on his county to win.  An Englishwoman attends the final with her partner, wondering when to tell him that she’s pregnant. A long-retired player watches the match from the stands, his gaze repeatedly falling on the Cork captain, whom he and his wife gave up for adoption years earlier. Clare’s star forward struggles under the weight of expectation. Cork’s talisman waits for the sliotar to fall from the sky, aware that his destiny is already set.

Technically daring and with an unforgettable cast of characters, The First Sunday in September announces an exciting new voice in Irish fiction.
