Liz Nugent, Lying In Wait
Lying In Wait is a novel of cruelty—not the cruelty of intentions, but the cruel compromises we make between what we seek and what we know we are, what we want and what we are told to want. Liz Nugent stunned us with her novel of the violence lurking in middle-class life, Unraveling Oliver, and Lying In Wait takes us into 1980s Ireland to pillory the hypocrisies of an era, while showing how simple, individual lives are destroyed under the weight of social expectations. This book is a brutal as it is beautiful, with the year’s most haunting ending.
