Synopsis

Read our exclusive author interview





"Luminous and moving. A story that asks who you can love and how, and a novel that gets to the heart of things; it certainly got to the heart of me." (Sunjeev Sahota, author of The Year of the Runaways). The house is on Montpelier Parade: just across town, but it might as well be a different world. Working on the garden with his father one Saturday, Sonny is full of curiosity. Then the back door eases open and she comes down the path towards him. Vera. Chance meetings become shy arrangements, and soon Sonny is in love for the first time. Casting off his lonely life of dreams and quiet violence for this new, intoxicating encounter, he longs to know Vera, even to save her. But what is it that Vera isn't telling him? Unfolding in the sea-bright, rain-soaked Dublin of early spring, Montpelier Parade is a beautiful, cinematic novel about desire, longing, grief, hope and the things that remain unspoken. It is about how deeply we can connect with one another, and the choices we must also make alone.

Staff Choice

This debut is huge on atmosphere and quietly compelling. It’s a coming of age novel in which Sonny’s dreams and hopes are at odds with what life seems to have  in store for him. He forces a change when he falls for an older woman, but the consequences go far beyond even his imaginings. With his striking, luminous prose, Geary is an author to watch.
