A new cover edition of John McGahern's Booker-shortlisted novel.

Moran is an old Republican, a veteran of the Irish Civil War. His old age, its rhythm and shape, is dominated by his three daughters. It is they who revive the custom of celebrating Monaghan Day and it is through their lives that we discover the story of his life.
