Sunrise With Sea Monster
Imprisoned in Spain during the Spanish Civil War, Donal Gore is sustained by memories of setting fishing lines on the beach with his father, back home in Ireland. When he is released by a German officer who expects political intelligence in return, he goes back to the family home on the rainswept promenade – to find his once powerful father dramatically changed. Always hopelessly unable to express their feelings for each other, father and son now find that they are literally beyond language. And the fumbling, triangular relationship between the two men and Rose, Donal’s beautiful young stepmother, becomes more fraught than ever.
