Articles
The children of Rosaleen Madigan leave the west of Ireland for lives they never could have imagined in Dublin, New York and various third-world towns. In her early old age their difficult, wonderful mother announces that she's decided to sell the house and divide the proceeds. Her adult children come back for a last Christmas, with the feeling that their childhoods are being erased, their personal history bought and sold. A darkly glinting novel set on Ireland's Atlantic coast, 'The Green Road' is a story of fracture and family, selfishness and compassion - a book about the gaps in the human heart and how we learn to fill them.
