LoveReading View on This Human Season

Louise Dean is without doubt a significant new voice in British fiction.  Her portrayal of 1979 Ireland at a time when two sides were at loggerheads is immensely powerful.  As her well drawn characters from both sides of the divide come together they reveal the almost impossible situation in which they live.  Both explosive and controversial the novel portrays one of the blackest moments of British History without being sensationalist.

This Human Season Synopsis

It is December 1979. Kathleen's son Sean has been convicted of a crime on behalf of the IRA and sent to Long Kesh prison - newly renamed the Maze.

John Dunn has just taken up a job as a prison guard after leaving the army.

Both will be shocked at what they find. Both will try to do the right thing, and fail. Neither will ever be the same again.
