Melding his native Irish sensibilities to those of his adopted west-coast Scotland, these tales attend to life’s big events: love and loss, separation and violence, death and betrayal.

Grace Notes

Original Synopsis

"Grace Notes has a total of 288 pages which are papers from writer 'Bernard MacLaverty'. Returning to Belfast after a long absense, to attend her father`s funeral. Catherine McKenna-a young composer-remembers exactly why she left: the claustrophobic intimacies of the Catholic enclave, her fastidious, nagging mother, and the pervading tensions of a city at war with itself. She remembers a more innocent time, when the Loyalists Lambeg drums sounded mysterious and exciting; she remembers her shattered relationship with the drunken, violent Dave, she remembers the child she had with him, waiting back in Glasgow. This is a novel, about coming to terms with the past and the healing power of music, GRACE NOTES is a master story-teller`s triumphant return to the long form: a powerful lyrical novel of great distinction. 2011-02-22 time of publication of the book, [-Random House-]"

On a promontory jutting out into the Atlantic wind stands the Home run by Brother Benedict, where boys are taught a little of God and a lot of fear.

Radio Eireann call it a kidnapping. For Michael the act is the beginning of Owen's salvation. Posing as father and son, they concentrate on discovering the happiness that is so unfamiliar to them both.

The Anatomy School

Original Synopsis

"The Anatomy School has a total of 368 pages which are papers from writer 'Bernard MacLaverty'. This is the story of the growing up of Martin Brennan, a troubled boy in troubled times, a boy who knows all the questions but none of the answers. This is Belfast in the late sixties. Before he can become an adult, Martin must unravel the sacred and contradictory mysteries of religion, science and sex; he must learn the value of friendship; but most of all he must pass his exams - at any cost. A book that celebrates the desire to speak and the need to say nothing, The Anatomy School moves from the enforced silence of Martin's Catholic school retreat, through the hilarious tea-and-biscuits repartee of his eccentric elders to the awkward wit and loose profanity of his two friends - the charismatic Kavanagh and the subversive Blaise Foley. An absorbing, tense and often very funny novel which takes Martin from the initiations of youth to the devoutly-wished-for consummation of the flesh, Bernard MacLaverty's new book is a remarkable re-creation of the high anxieties and deep joys of learning to find a place in the world. 2010-12-07 time of publication of the book, [-Random House-]"

Midwinter Break: A Novel

Original Synopsis

"Midwinter Break: A Novel has a total of 208 pages which are papers from writer 'Bernard MacLaverty'. For readers of Colm Toíbín, a moving portrait of a marriage in crisis and a couple’s search for salvation. Sixteen years on from his last novel, Bernard MacLaverty reminds us why he is regarded as one of the greatest living Irish writers. A retired couple, Gerry and Stella Gilmore, fly from their home in Scotland to Amsterdam for a long weekend—a holiday to refresh the senses, to do some sightseeing, and generally to take stock of what remains of their lives. Their relationship seems safe, easy, familiar. But over the course of the four days we discover the deep uncertainties that exist between them. Gerry, once an architect, is forgetful and set in his ways. Stella is tired of his lifestyle, worried about their marriage, and angry at his constant undermining of her religious faith. Things are not helped by memories that have begun to resurface of a troubled time in their native Ireland. As their midwinter break comes to an end, we understand how far apart they are—and can only watch as they struggle to save themselves. MacLaverty is a master storyteller, and Midwinter Break is the essential MacLaverty novel: accurate, compassionate observation; effortlessly elegant writing; and a tender, intimate, heartrending story. Yet it is also a profound examination of human love and how we live together, a chamber piece of real resonance and power. Forty years after his first book, MacLaverty has written his masterpiece. 2017-08-22 time of publication of the book, [-W. W. Norton & Company-]"

Walking the Dog and Other Stories

Original Synopsis

"Walking the Dog and Other Stories has a total of 208 pages which are papers from writer 'Bernard MacLaverty'. The long-awaited new collection from Bernard MacLaverty examines worlds in collision, relationships fragmenting, innocence face to face with real life, real death. A Catholic schoolboy minding goal has a theological debate with a B-Special; a chess game in Spain is a catalyst for grief and redemption; a Belfast man out walking his dog is kidnapped at gunpoint and told to say his ABC. . . Interwoven through the book are wry, elliptical 'stories within stories' about fiction and the writing of it, featuring 'your man' -a comically beleaguered alter ego. Acting as foils to the brilliance of the real thing, these very short pieces point up the tough lyricism of MacLaverty's work. As always, his writing is vivid, exact and pellucid, his characters perfectly observed, the surface of the prose deceptively still. It is only once we enter the world of the stories that we begin to make out the huge shapes that move there: loss, love, disappointment, fierce joy. WALKING THE DOG has been worth waiting for: it is a powerful, honest and moving book by one of the great storytellers of our age. 2011-02-28 time of publication of the book, [-Random House-]"

Matters Of Life & Death

"Matters Of Life & Death has a total of 240 pages which are papers from writer 'Bernard MacLaverty'. Any book of stories from Bernard MacLaverty is a cause for celebration, but Matters of Life and Death is more than that, as it is - without question - one of the finest contemporary examples of the short story as a genre. Beginning with the sudden, nauseating terror of a family caught up in an explosion of shocking sectarian violence and ending with the white-out of an Iowa blizzard and a different kind of fear, Matters of Life and Death is a book about bonds and connections, made and broken, secret and known. Vivid, beautifully controlled and written with effortless skill and empathy, these stories are object lessons in the art of short fiction. 2010-12-07 time of publication of the book, [-Random House-]"

Grace Notes: A Novel

Original Synopsis

"Grace Notes: A Novel has a total of 288 pages which are papers from writer 'Bernard MacLaverty'. The luminous novel by one of the finest living Irish writers, which Brian Moore has praised as "in every sense a triumph . . . moving throughout and ending triumphantly and joyously in its own special music." The award-winning Grace Notes is a compact and altogether masterful portrait of a woman composer and the complex interplay between her life and her art. With superb artistry and startling intimacy, it brings us into the life of Catherine McKenna — estranged daughter, vexed lover, new mother, and musician making her mark in a male-dominated field. It is a book that the Virginia Woolf of A Room of One's Own would instantly understand. "MacLaverty summons up a time and a place with an unerring exactness reminiscent of Joyce's Dubliners . . . a magnificent portrait of the sources and ends, wretchedness and rewards, of creativity."—Sunday Times [London] "Page after page something delighted and moved me-marvelous, vivid tours of emotion, intelligence, poetry-every step of the way. Compelling."—Dennis McFarland, author of The Music Room "I was reminded of the way Joyce Cary so brilliantly portrayed a painter's life in The Horse's Mouth. . . . What a wonderful writer [MacLaverty] is!"—Andrea Barrett "More ambitious than any of his previous work . . . a remarkable novel."—Anna Mundow, Boston Globe Shortlisted for the Booker Prize and the Whitbread Prize Winner of the Saltire Scottish Book of the Year Award 1998-11-17 time of publication of the book, [-W.

The Great Profundo and Other Stories

Original Synopsis

"The Great Profundo and Other Stories has a total of 143 pages which are papers from writer 'Bernard MacLaverty'. On the fringes of society, the characters of Bernard MacLaverty's stories are forced to seek consolation as best they can. A lonely old lady resorts to posting a monthly letter to herself; a retired policeman and a cornet-player, captivated by a young flautist, seeks oblivion in drink. In a shabby world, some simply suffer unseen: a sword-swallower, once immortalised by Matisse, sustains a fatal wound before an unheeding, drunken audience; a parish priest slips into death in the cold solitude of his church. Others find unexpected forms of expression: a young boy sheds the shame of his psoriasis through friendship with an eccentric duchess, and a poem provides a tenuous link between two inarticulate strangers. Long-term relationships can lead to a new understanding: a famous architect and his son becomes aware of a bond of mutual affection despite the gult between them in attitudes and values. 1997-07-03 time of publication of the book, [-Random House-]"
