Birchwood by John Banville

After years away, Gabriel returns to a house filled with memories and despair.  Delving deep into family secrets—a cold father, a tortured mother, an insane grandmother—Gabriel also recalls his first encounters with love and loss.  A novel of a family, of isolation, and of a blighted Ireland, Birchwood is a remarkable story about the end of innocence for one boy and his country.  Books will be available at the reference desk.  For more information, please call 801-337-2632.
