Description

‘Profoundly imagined characters, spiced with the off-kilter and deliciously mad . . . a work of great empathy and imagination’ THE IRISH TIMES

The season’s just begun at Seacliff Caravan Park, but none of the residents are having a good time.

Frankie is haunted by his daughter’s death. Vidas, homeless and far from Lithuania, seeks sanctuary in an abandoned caravan. Anna struggles to shake off the ghost of her overbearing mother. Kathleen struggles to accept her daughter for who she is. Malcolm, a failed illusionist, makes one final attempt to reinvent himself. Agatha Christie-obsessed Alma faces her toughest case yet as she tries to help them all find what they’ve lost.

With trademark wit and playfulness, in this stunning linked short-story collection Jan Carson explores complex family dynamics, ageing, immigration, gender politics, the decline of the Church and the legacy of the Troubles. The Last Resort firmly places Carson as one of the most inventive and daring writers of her generation.
