Cal

Front Cover
G. Braziller, 1983 - Fiction - 170 pages
28 Reviews
For Cal, some of the choices are devastatingly simple: he can work in the abattoir that nauseates him or join the dole queue; he can brood on his past or plan a future with Marcella. Set amid the fear and violence of Ulster, Cal is a haunting love story in a land where tenderness and innocence can only flicker briefly in the dark.
