Údar: Re Ó Laighléis
ISBN 1 899922 09 1
The dark shadow of institutional child abuse hangs over everything in Andy’s life, not least his attempts to find out who he is and why he was abandoned as a child. Not for the first time Ré Ó Laighléis explores one of contemporary society’s great taboos in a novel of rare power and genuine emotion. His best-selling novel Gafa dealing with teenage drug addiction was a first in the Irish language and was so successful that an English version has recently been published. Now comes the dark tale of Andy whose search for his identity leads to a truly extraordinary discovery.
