Montpelier Parade by Karl Geary

Writing.ie | Book Reviews | General Fiction

By Mairéad Hearne (Swirl and Thread)

Montpelier Parade by Karl Geary is published by Vintage and is described as a book ‘about how deeply we can connect with one another, and the choices we must make alone.’

Montpelier Parade was a book that I had been meaning to read for quite some time. It pulled on every heartstring as I turned the pages, with writing that was extremely sensitive to the characters, bringing Vera and Sonny very much to life.

There is a great tenderness throughout this debut as Sonny steps out of his working class life into the arms of the more affluent and older, Vera. Her story is trapped within the lines but eventually the truth does out and it is quite shattering.

A very poignant and beautiful story, Montpelier Parade, is a tragic love story, a coming-of-age novel that will remain in the heart of every reader for some time.
