Notes

  • A novel in eleven parts.
  • Dedication: I dedicate this book to the memory of my father, Jack Hanrahan, 1910-1985. He taught me to love books and showed me by example his ways of loving people. And to three of his grandchildren, Brigid, Michael and Sheena. 'Moira' in particular, I dedicate to Brigid, because it really is her story of 'the falling sickness'.
  • Includes lengthy epigraphs (p.vii) from The Raccolta or Prayers and Devotions, 1 Corinthians and A Midsummer Night's Dream.
