Gráinne, quite simply, is unique; a moving and magical tour de force that ranks with Keith Roberts' best.
Ostensibly, the novel charts the career of one alistair Bevan, writer and admin, from his beginnings in a post-war Midlands town. Here though any parallels with our world cease. Through Bevan's vivid memories we meet Gráinne; blue stocking , seductress, darling of the media. Painfully human yet mysterious as her namesake, the girl-goddess doomed by her own proud nature who plunged all Ireland into war and shadow.
