Description

Sandstone Press, 2016. 74 pages. Paperback.

Relegated to the singletons’ table at yet another wedding, Anna is fed up with forking out for her friends’ extravagant presents.  Newly-weds won’t settle for a toaster and a set of towels; they want balloon trips across the Serengeti. If only there was a way for her to enjoy all the treats she’s been lavishing on her friends. And then she meets Donald – equally cynical about weddings and totally up for a charade that will deceive everyone they know.

Banais na Bliadhna (The Wedding of the Year) takes a swipe at big fat weddings, cutting through the lace and icing to the ruthless consumerism beneath. It’s a comedy of manners for everyone who has ever gazed in horror at a wedding list, or wondered if they’ve made the right decision – about those sherry glasses, or about the person they’ve chosen to spend their life with.

"This is a funny book, although there's depth to it as well...the writing is always light-hearted and easy to read."
Mairi Rhind (Full review in STEALL 02, pp.46-7)
