Launch of ‘The Garden’ by Paul Perry
MoLI, in association with New Island Books, is delighted to host the online launch of Paul Perry’s new novel, The Garden. To celebrate the publication, the author will be in conversation with novelist and playwright Declan Hughes.
The Garden is described by Anne Enright as ‘a lush, tough evocation of obsession and betrayal’. On a devastated orchid farm in Southern Florida, Swallow, an Irish migrant worker and ex-marine, faces a reckoning in the illegal hunt for an endangered ghost orchid. The Garden is a modern fable, and a warning against trespassing upon nature in the name of profit.
We have a limited number of signed copies of the book available now from the MoLI shop!
