Karl Geary – Montpelier Parade
‘A delicate, crystalline, hugely impressive novel… He’s yet another masterful younger writer coming through… Wonderful’ – Sebastian Barry
Her house is on Montpelier Parade – just across town, but it might as well be a different world. Sonny is fixing a crumbling wall in the garden when he sees her for the first time, coming down the path towards him. Vera.
Vera is older, wealthier, sophisticated, but chance meetings quickly become shy arrangements, and soon Sonny is in love for the first time. But there is something unsettling that Vera is keeping from him. Unfolding in the sea-bright Dublin of early spring,Montpelier Paradeis an indelible novel about the things that remain unspoken between lovers. It is about how deeply we can connect with one another, and the choices we must make alone.
Longlisted for the Desmond Elliott Prize 2017
