Out now: 'Inch levels' by Neil Hegarty

A stunning debut novel by the acclaimed author of History of Ireland.

Set in and around the contested city of Derry over a period of fifty years, from the Second World War to the Troubles of the 1980s, Inch Levels evokes the desolate and beautiful landscape of Ireland’s north Atlantic coastline as the truth rises slowly to the surface.

‘Inch Levels’ is a perceptive and moving study of remorse and resilience, of the legacy violence leaves behind, and of the intricacies of family life; in the world as Neil Hegarty conjures it, old secrets never die, and what’s past is never past.
