From Ross Raisin, the highly acclaimed author of Out Backward-a debut novel Colm TOibIn 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
