Pageturners July Evening Book Discussion

Wed 10 July at 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm

Prophet Song is a work of breathtaking originality and devastating insight, a novel that can be read as a parable of the present, the future

Join us for a discussion about the 2023 Booker prize-winning novle Prophet Song by Irish author Paul Lynch.

On a dark, wet evening in Dublin, scientist and mother-of-four Eilish Stack answers her front door to find the GNSB on her doorstep. Two officers from Ireland’s newly formed secret police want to speak with her husband, Larry, a trade unionist for the Teachers’ Union of Ireland. Things are falling apart. Ireland is in the grip of a government that is taking a turn towards tyranny. And as the blood-dimmed tide is loosed, Eilish finds herself caught within the nightmare logic of a collapsing society — assailed by unpredictable forces beyond her control and forced to do whatever it takes to keep her family together.

Exhilarating, terrifying, propulsive and confrontational, Prophet Song is a work of breathtaking originality and devastating insight, a novel that can be read as a parable of the present, the future and the past.
