The River and Enoch O'Reilly : A small Irish town. A river flood. The return of a prodigal son. On the banks of the river Rua, when the rains have stopped and the waters receded, nine bodies are found. What took them to the river?

Enoch O’Reilly, a self-made preacher and Elvis impersonator claiming to be just returned to Ireland from America, launches a radio show Revival Hour. It enjoys a short but spectacular run, and its disastrous end forces Enoch back to the family home. There he finds clues to a mythic connection between the dead - this brotherhood of the flood - the natural rhythms of the earth, a secret language called riverish, and his lost father.

Conjuring together various traditions - gothic, Irish, Southern, musical, poetic, our deep connections to stories, to our homelands, and to nature - Peter Murphy establishes himself as one of Ireland’s newest literary wonders.
