 About the Book 

Patrick McCabes most disturbing, original and accomplished novel yet. From the Booker Prize shortlisted author of The Butcher Boy, The Dead School and Breakfast on Pluto.Once, Redmond Hatch was in heaven, married to the lovely Catherine and father to enchanting daughter Immy, but then he took them both to Winterwood and it would never be the same again. In Patrick McCabes spellbinding new novel, nothing-and no oneā€”are ever quite what they seem. When Hatch, devoted husband and father, revisits the secluded mountains where he grew up, he meets Auld Pappie Ned. While he claims to be just a harmless local fiddler, a teller of tall tales, Ned sets off a cataclysmic chain of events in Redmonds life. From the mysterious disappearance of Redmonds daughter to the reluctant remembrance of a troubled boyhood to secret glimpses into an unstable marriage, everything soon spirals out of control. Narrated with hypnotic precision and fractured lyricism, Winterwood is a disturbing and unforgettable tale of love, death and identity from a masterful novelist.Patrick McCabes Winterwood is a disturbing but brilliant evocation of modern rural Ireland. - Irvine Welsh
