From Ross Raisin, the highly acclaimed author of Out Backward--a debut novel Colm Tóibín called "compelling, disturbing and often very funny"--comes the moving and story of an ex-shipyard worker's journey of grief and reclamation in the wake of his wife's death. Lyrical and resonant, with echoes of Paul Harding's Tinkers and Anne Enright's The Gathering, Raisin's blue collar story of a man's fractured search for a new beginning is a powerfully voiced, penetratingly personal narrative of alienation and, ultimately, redemption.

"Ross Raisin confirms himself as an exciting talent, a unique, gifted, and generous voice, a young writer with a vision broad far beyond his years." --David Vann, Financial Times

An truly talented writer. In the genre of Even the Dogs. Good enough to win the Dublin prize or at least make the short list. Certainly as good as Even the Dogs which did win the prize in 2012.

The author has a brilliant ability to be inside the head of an inarticulate working class man and to honestly communicate his alienation and overwhelming grief. The story is his journey from the death of his wife because of asbestos at his workplace through his grief to a form of reconciliation. This is a wonderful, authentic author.
