The Invisible Worm

The Invisible Worm

It starts with a funeral. The great and the good have assembled: the President has sent a representative, and dignitaries are there in force. And Laura remembers those two terrible events. But was the tragedy out at sea an accident? Was the experience in the summerhouse cause rather than effect?
With wonderful delicacy and economy, Jennifer Johnston has stripped bare the lives of a family overwhelmed by more than one of the deadly sins. The Invisible Worm contains greater power and passion than most novels three times its length.

Cool, crafted poise and sly wit
The Times
Roddy Doyle called Johnston the best writer in Ireland. Mesmerising, powerful fiction
