Summary
From a brilliant new voice in Irish fiction, He Is Mine and I Have No Other is a dark, intense and gripping debut about the overwhelming nature of first love and about the devastating power of buried secrets. 'I was frightened of him in a way - of his grief, his loneliness - for he looked like the loneliest person on earth just then ... the type of boy who wondered about things, as I did, who broke his heart wondering about things ...' In 1990s-small-town Ireland, amid the sweaty school discos and first fumblings of adolescence, fifteen-year-old Lani Devine falls in love with Leon Brady, whose mother is buried in the cemetery next to Lani's house. Lani is haunted by the stories of thirty-five orphaned girls, buried in an unmarked grave near Leon's mother. As the love story unfolds, and then unravels, it becomes clear that Leon too is haunted - by a brutal family tragedy that has left scars much more than skin-deep. He Is Mine and I Have No Other is a captivating, eerie and atmospheric novel about the obsessive power of first love, about the claustrophobia a tight-knit family and community can cause, and about buried secrets and the havoc they wreak
