Inhalt: When a wanted war criminal, masquerading as a healer, settles in a small west coast Irish village, the community are in thrall. One woman, Fidelma McBride, falls under his spell and in this searing novel, Edna O'Brien charts the consequence of that fatal attraction. This is a story about love, the artifice of evil and the terrible necessity of accountability in our shattered, damaged world.It has been ten years since the last novel from Edna O'Brien and The Little Red Chairs reminds us why she is felt to be one of the great Irish writers, of any generation. The Little Red Chairs may be her masterpiece.
