The River Capture

Luke O’Brien has left Dublin to live a quiet life on the bend of the River Sullane. Alone in his big house, he longs for a return to his family’s heyday and turns to books for solace. Until one morning a young woman arrives at his door and enters his life with profound consequences.

A novel that pays homage to Joyce, The River Capture is a book about the life of the mind and the redemptive powers of art.
