Publisher's Summary

Patrick McCabe's most disturbing, original and accomplished novel yet. From the Booker Prize shortlisted author of The Butcher Boy, The Dead School and Breakfast on Pluto.A chilling, spellbinding and highly original new novel from the prize-winning author of Breakfast on Pluto and The Butcher Boy. Once, Redmond Hatch was in heaven, married to the lovely Catherine and father to enchanting daughter Immy. But then he took them both to Winterwood. And it would never be the same again...In Patrick McCabe's spellbinding new novel, nothing - and no one - are ever quite what they seem. When Hatch, devoted husband and father, revisits the secluded mountains where he grew up, he meets Auld Pappie Ned. While he claims to be just a harmless local fiddler, a teller of tall tales, Ned sets off a cataclysmic chain of events in Redmond's life. From the mysterious disappearance of Redmond's daughter to the reluctant remembrance of a troubled boyhood to secret glimpses into an unstable marriage, everything soon spirals out of control. Narrated with hypnotic precision and fractured lyricism, Winterwood is a disturbing and unforgettable tale of love, death and identity from a masterful novelist.

Winterwood

Strange,sinister,disturbing. Sad and an uneasy read.
Thats how I'd describe this book. I preferred reading it than listening to it. only because Gerry O,Briens performance was so good and realistic it became somewhat disturbing.
if your looking for a light hearted fun read then this isn't it. it is however a great book...if not a bit macabre.
Read the butcher boy or carn. these are my favourite McCabe books.
