The Coal-black Sea
by Maighread Medbh
Set in Dublin and spanning a time period from 1976 to 1999, The Coal-black Sea is a novel of violence, frustration, introspection, and illusory desire. Obsessed with her every feeling, Joan Fey finds herself abusive and moral in a confused mix. She may be to blame for criminal acts, but without a witness, who will be her judge and jury?
