Ten Days, Paperback / softback Book

Ten Days Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

'Austin Duffy's uniquely dry, laconic style adds a subversive and compelling charge to this moving and intense story of the relationship between a father and daughter.

A terrific novel' - William BoydWhen Wolf's recently-estranged wife Miriam dies from cancer, his entire world is turned upside down.

Wolf and his daughter, Ruth, travel to New York from London to scatter Miriam's ashes in the Hudson River.

During the ten High Holy Days of Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur they connect up with Miriam's conservative Jewish family, who are adamantly against Miriam's choice of burial.

Battling the antagonism of Miriam's Orthodox family, Wolf is also coming to terms with his own hopes to put right wrongs before it's too late. A tenderly written story of time, grief and memory, Ten Days delves deep into the complicated love between a father and daughter and the bonds of marriage over older family ties.
