This award-winning début novel tells the story of a young woman's relationship with her brother, and the long shadow cast by his childhood brain tumour, giving an insight into the thoughts, feelings and chaotic sexuality of a vulnerable and isolated protagonist.
Here's the first paragraph for you:
"For you. You'll soon. You'll give her a name. In the stitches of her skin she'll wear your say. Mammy me? Yes you. Bounce the bed, I'd say. I'd say that's what you did. Then lay you down. They cut you round. Wait and hour and day."
