Moran is an old Republican whose life was forever transformed by his days of glory as a guerrilla leader in the War of Independence. Now, in old age, living out in the country, Moran is still fighting - with his family, his friends, even himself - in a poignant struggle to come to terms with the past.
'McGahern brings us that tonic gift of the best fiction, the sense of truth . . . a sight that cleanses us even as it saddens and frightens.' John Updike
'A book that can be read in two hours, but will linger in the mind for decades.' Sunday TelegraphBiografía del autor:
