The much-anticipated new novel from the literary world’s master of storytelling, Edna O’Brien.
A woman discovers that the foreigner she thinks will redeem her life is a notorious war criminal.
Vlad, a stranger from Eastern Europe masquerading as a healer, settles in a small Irish village where the locals fall under his spell. One woman, Fidelma McBride, becomes so enamored that she begs him for a child. All of that world is shattered when Vlad is arrested, and his identity as a war criminal is revealed.
Fidelma, disgraced, flees to England and seeks work among the other migrants displaced by wars and persecution. But it is not until she confronts him—her nemesis—at the tribunal in the Hague, that her physical and emotional journey reaches its breathtaking climax.
The Little Red Chairs is a story about love, and the endless search for it. It is also a story about mankind’s fascination with evil and how long and crooked the road towards home is. Download and start listening now!
