A novel in which the boy narrator grows up enclosed in two worlds. One is legendary - a Donegal house where children are stolen away by demonic forces; the other is actual - the city of Derry in the Northern Ireland of the 1940s and 1950s, a place haunted by political enmities and family secrets.

"Reading In The Dark is a swift, masterful transformation of family griefs and political violence into something at once rhapsodic and heartbreaking. If Isaac Babel had been born in Derry, he might have written this sudden, brilliant book." Seamus Heaney "Marvellous...almost impossible to put down" -- Blake Morrison Independent on Sunday "Go into your nearest bookshop and buy Reading In The Dark... A novel that no reader with any concern for their heart or mind should be without" -- A. L. Kennedy Scotsman "A wonderful evocation of childhood; a vibrant, unforgettable fragment that leaves you aching for more" -- Robert McCrum Observer "A profoundly emotive and seamlessly structured exploration of loss and regret. It is also funny and authentic. What more could one ask of a book?" -- Antonia Logue Guardian
