Travel Guide

Dublin with the most dysfunctional family in the city

There is not a strong sense of location in the novel but it’s got that distinct Irish flavour given the words dotted throughout the text and of course, the background of the author herself.

Dublin is a background and it is there to add flavour and history – however the family and the strange dynamics within is the main ‘setting’ of the book and it’s a disturbing but fascinating place.
