The Pigeon Men £5.95

Felicity McCall

In the dim confines of his pigeon loft, Carrie’s granda shares with her secrets more intimate and closely guarded than his formula for nurturing a champion bird. Secrets that, for as long as they remain untold and not believed, will steal her childhood, her future and almost her sanity. Secrets that will leave a legacy that, even for a survivor, will last a lifetime.

Told in the first- and third-person narrative as the past interweaves with the present, the complexity that is the young and adult, public and private Carrie is a chilling metaphor for one of society’s last taboos.

A compelling and powerful work ... from one of Ireland’s most accomplished writers: tragic in theme, courageous and rich in expression, but always grounded in the confrontation of stark realism, The Pigeon Men is quite simply a triumph – moreover, it is a tale that had to be told.
Dr Liam Campbell, author and academic
