"An uneasy but powerful read from bestselling author Liz Nugent that delves into the darkness visited upon a family of three working-class Irish brothers, exploring the ways in which families can wreak emotional damage across generations and doom men to give in to their own worst impulses in service to a culture that has abandoned them"-- Provided by publisher.
The three Drumm brothers, William, Brian, and Luke, were born a year apart, and trained from birth by their mother to compete for her attention. They play games, as brothers do, yet even after the Drumms escape into the world beyond their windows, those games-- those little cruelties-- grow more sinister, more merciless, and more dangerous. And with their lives entwined like the strands of a noose, only two of the brothers will survive. -- adapted from jacket
