Award winning author

The new novel about love, loyalty and nature, from the author of Academy Street, Irish Book Awards Book of the Year 2014.

He can feel the river’s presence. It never leaves him; it is there, always, on the edge of his consciousness. Even in sleep, it flows through his dreams, watching, waiting, coaxing his attention. Luke O’Brien has left Dublin to live a quiet life on his family land 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. One morning a young woman arrives at his door and enters his life with profound consequences. She presents him and his family with an almost impossible dilemma. In a novel that pays glorious homage to Joyce, The River Capture tells of one man’s descent into near madness, culminating in an experience of astonishing beauty and transcendence. This is a novel about love, loyalty and the raging forces of nature. More than anything, it is a book about the life of the mind and the redemptive powers of art.

'Mary Costello's writing has the kind of urgency that the great problems demand – call them themes; they are the kind of problems that make a writer.'
Guardian

'Delve[s] deep into the human condition, into the bittersweet beauty of life.'
