Michael Moran is an old Irish Republican whose life was forever transformed by his days of glory as a guerrilla leader in the Irish War of Independence. Moran is still fighting - with his family, his friends, and even himself - in this haunting testimony to the enduring qualities of the human spirit. Amongst Women is widely considered John McGahern’s finest novel, and was described as ‘a masterpiece’ by fellow author John Banville.
