By Griffin, Anne
Maurice Hannigan, a successful eighty-four-year-old Irish farmer, sits alone at the bar of the Rainsford House Hotel in County Meath, on the east coast of Ireland, talking in his head to his son who lives in New Jersey. Over the course of the evening he has five drinks, raises fi...ve toasts and tells us five memories: one for each person who has meant the most to him over the course of his lifetime. But this is no ordinary night. When all the toasts are done, when all the ghosts are laid to rest, Maurice's final drink will be his last. Offering a glimpse at the life of a flawed man who has trusted few but loved deeply, When All is Said is a heart breaking love story with a beautifully crafted structure.Read more
