The Gathering – Anne Enright

The Gathering

READ FOR BOOKERTHON

Irish woman Veronica takes a closer look at her family’s troubled history while at the funeral of her brother who committed suicide.

“For me, the endless misery in The Gathering put a veil over the whole reading experience, making it impossible to see what distinguished this as a book worthy of Booker nomination. I guess if that’s what she was after, Enright has done well, but I don’t know how that translates into reader appeal.” – Rachel
