The Pigeon Men

The Pigeon Men


Out of stock

Felicity McCall

In the dim confines of his pigeon loft, Carrie’s granda shares with her secrets more intimate and closely guarded than his formula for nurturing a champion bird. Secrets that, for as long as they remain untold and not believed, will steal her childhood, her future and almost her sanity. Secrets that will leave a legacy that, even for a survivor, will last a lifetime.

Told in the first- and third-person narrative as the past interweaves with the present, the complexity that is the young and adult, public and private Carrie is a chilling metaphor for one of society’s last taboos.

A compelling and powerful work … from one of Ireland’s most accomplished writers: tragic in theme, courageous and rich in expression, but always grounded in the confrontation of stark realism, The Pigeon Men is quite simply a triumph – moreover, it is a tale that had to be told.
