Shortlisted for the Bord Gais Irish Book Awards Book of the Decade. Winner of the Man Booker Prize for 2007 and The Irish Book Awards Hughes & Hughes Irish Novel of the Year for 2008.
The nine surviving children of the Hegarty clan gather in Dublin for the wake of their wayward brother Liam. It wasn't the drink that killed him - although that certainly helped - it was what happened to him as a boy in his grandmother's house, in the winter of 1968. "The Gathering" is a novel about love and disappointment, about thwarted lust and limitless desire, and how our fate is written in the body, not in the stars.
