This novel by the Irish journalist, Deirdre Purcell, tells the story of a woman who has had a difficult life. She is one of five children, all with different fathers, whose mother dies from drug-related causes. She raises her baby brother. The bulk of the novel tells of their lives when he, aged 19, is convicted of rape. While it was a fast read for the first 400 pages, the last fifth of the book was incomprehensible and full of contradictions. What does the author think about rape? What does she think about the damage done by journalists to this family?
