Shortlisted for the 1999 Booker Prize. Beautiful, lyrical Irish writing about how a family and friends rally around a young man dying of AIDS. We learn the histories, resentments and secrets of the mother, grandmother and sister of the dying man, as well as his two best friends who have come to take care of him in his dying days. This is a beautiful story that resonates with love and spiritual searching. ~ Reviewed by Barbara Morrow
