Pickpick

“We should be valued in neither our successes nor our failures, but in our endurance.” Feeney is a poet and it shows in this, her first novel: the language is miraculous. A terminal cancer diagnosis has Sinead, the narrator, marooned in a hospital ward in Galway. Reluctant to admit her own truths to anyone, her fellow patients give her a lifeline back to what matters most. Painful, hilarious, and unforgettable.
