What would you do if you found out your husband of thirty years is not who you thought he was? What would you do if you suddenly discovered that you have indeed had the one thing you had yearned for all your life without realizing it?
A magical new novel from the New York Times bestselling author of Lost Lake, featuring characters from her beloved novel Garden Spells.
2015 Summer Book Awards Winner: Colm Herron, one of Irelandâ€™s most gifted storytellers, brings wry humour and acute insight to bear on his portrayal of Derry folk in The Wake (And What Jeremiah Did Next). The raucous human panorama unfolds through the eyes of Jeremiah. Earthy wake banter, competition for the love of a bisexual activist, and the civil rights march through Burntollet in early 1969, when violence shattered Northern Irelandâ€™s fragile peace, are vehicles for this shrewd, sympathetic and unique commentary on the human condition.
