We’re happy to report that Anne Griffin‘s acclaimed, best-selling, and award-winning debut novel, WHEN ALL IS SAID is now available in Croatia! Published by Mozaik knjiga as NA KRAJU BALADE, the novel has been translated by Mirna Čubranić. Here’s the synopsis…
U baru otmjenog hotela u jednom irskom gradiću sjedi osamdeset četverogodišnji Maurice Hannigan. Sâm je, kao i obično – iako je ova večer sve osim obična. Privucite stolac i napunite čašu, jer Maurice je napokon spreman ispričati svoju priču.
Tijekom te večeri nazdravit će petero ljudi koji su mu najviše značili. Kroz te priče – o prešućenoj radosti i kajanju, skrivenoj tragediji, strastvenoj ljubavi koja nikad nije pronašla najbolji put – život jednog muškarca bit će ogoljen na snažan i pronicav način.
Dirljiv i iskren u isti mah, glas Mauricea Hannigana pamtit ćete još dugo nakon što sve bude izrečeno.
Priča ispričana u jednoj večeri. Priča o jednom životu.
Five toasts. Five people. One lifetime.
‘I’m here to remember – all that I have been and all that I will never be again.’
At the bar of a grand hotel in a small Irish town sits 84-year-old Maurice Hannigan. He’s alone, as usual -though tonight is anything but. Pull up a stool and charge your glass, because Maurice is finally ready to tell his story.
Over the course of this evening, he will raise five toasts to the five people who have meant the most to him. Through these stories – of unspoken joy and regret, a secret tragedy kept hidden, a fierce love that never found its voice – the life of one man will be powerfully and poignantly laid bare.
Heart-breaking and heart-warming all at once, the voice of Maurice Hannigan will stay with you long after all is said.
