Summary
"Nora Doyle, a young Northern Irish girl, has come to university in London, in retreat from a family that is by turns poignant, bizarre and threatening. She has a loving relationship with her younger brother, Felix, who has Downs syndrome, but her parents have never recovered from the disappointment of his birth. Her mother has collapsed into self-pity and her proud, domineering father found refuge in a dogmatic Irish nationalism, which he expects his daughter to share." "In London, Nora is full of hope for a new life, complete with friends and benevolent adults who will concern themselves in her welfare in a way her parents could not. Instead she becomes the obsession of a narcissistic lecturer and finds it difficult to connect with her peers who fail to understand her vulnerable reserve, and whose experience and culture have been radically different from her own. Finally driven to an uncharacteristic act of cruelty, she is forced to realise that, while she may have escaped from her family, she cannot escape the effects of her upbringing."--BOOK JACKET
