One fateful, scandalous night brings the curtain down on Daniel Ryan’s life in Dublin during the 1950s. Years later, returning from an exile in New York, he is pursued by a shady young man—and the ghosts of his past.

Set against the backdrop of a production of Federico García Lorca’s Blood Wedding, Denis Kehoe’s debut is a sepia-toned tribute to love and loss.

Denis Kehoe lives in Dublin. Nights Beneath the Nation is his first novel.
