Homemaking for the Down-At-Heart by Finuala Dowling

R 280.00


Publication Date: September 2019

Margot is a late-night talk radio host - the perfect job for an outspoken insomniac. Unsurprisingly, she finds there is little opportunity for peaceful slumber when she arrives back homes from work in the early hours of the morning. By that time Curtis is getting ready for his dawn run along the seafront; her teenage daughter, Pia, is anxiously anticipating her father's capricious weekly visit; and Mr Morland, the family hanger-on, is preparing for his various psychic consultations of the day.

There's also her mother, Zoe, once the acclaimed author of a quirky self-help volume titled Homemaking for the Down-at-heart, but now entering the late stages of dementia. And at the centre of it all is Margot, longing for silence and solitude, away from her home's seemingly endless needs.

In this deeply moving new novel by the award-winning poet and novelist, Finuala Dowling, the author examines the fleeting and often complex moments of happiness in any household.
