No descriptions found.

She was dying of cancer and had only ten days to live. In a moving fictional reconstruction, the book traces two days they spent fulfilling her final wish and the intensity of those final hours in Berlin before she returned to Dublin. The narrator, Liam makes his way around Berlin with his dying companion, Una. She has prepared a list of places that she wants to see. In small leaps of memory, both Liam and Una reveal things to each other. She speaks of key events in her life - her lovers, her famous father, her alcoholic mother and crucially, the death of her younger brother. The narrator also reveals his own love story and questions arising over his daughter.

It is a journey full of affection and honesty and humour between them, a journey leading to a heartbreaking and uplifting final discovery about her brother at the Berliner Staatsoper.… (more)
