SHORTLISTED FOR EASON NOVEL OF THE YEAR IRISH BOOK AWARDS A BOOK OF THE YEAR IN THE IRISH TIMES and IRISH INDEPENDENT Luke O’Brien has left Dublin to live a quiet life on his family land on the bend of the River Sullane. Alone in his big house he longs for a return to his family’s heyday and turns to books for solace. One morning a young woman arrives at his door and enters his life with profound consequences. Her presence presents him and his family with an almost impossible dilemma. In a novel that pays glorious homage to Joyce The River Capture tells of one man’s descent into near madness and the possibility of rescue. This is a novel about love loyalty and the raging forces of nature. More than anything it is a book about the life of the mind and the redemptive powers of art.
