Description - The River Capture by Mary Costello

Thirty-four year old Luke O'Brien has left the city to live a quiet, bookish life on the River Sullane in County Waterford. Alone in his big house, he longs for a return to his family's heyday and turns to books-especially Ulysses-for solace and sublimation. One morning a young woman arrives at his door and enters his life, with profound consequences.

A novel that pays glorious homage to Joyce, The River Capture tells of a man's phenomenal descent into near madness when love is lost. It is about humanity's capacity for good and evil and what happens when Nature is thwarted. More than anything, it is a book about the life of the mind and the redemptive powers of art.
