In this strikingly inventive prose debut, Doireann Ní Ghríofa sculpts essay and auto-fiction to explore the deep connection between two writers centuries apart. In the 1700s an Irish noblewoman, on discovering that her husband has been murdered, drinks handfuls of his blood and composes an extraordinary poem. In the present day, a young mother narrowly avoids tragedy. On encountering the poem, she becomes obsessed with its echoes in her own life, and sets out to track down the rest of the poet’s story.
