The Wren, the Wren

This generational story alternates between Nell and Carmel, with a little time out for Phil and his poetry. Channeling her inner Sally Rooney as twentysomething Nell, Booker Prize winner Enright (The Gathering) is as convincing as when writing about Carmel, a woman closer to her own age. A poignant novel by a writer in peak form.


Enright’s sixth novel (The Gathering) presents a subtle, nuanced portrait of a complicated relationship. Norah’s voice is credibly pitched to transmit yearning, resignation, and understanding in varying intensities, always amplifying her compassion for Katherine and the people pulled into her orbit.
