Ghost Light by Joseph O’Connor


What happens to the muse of a famous writer? This is the question asked by Mr O’Connor.

In an ultimately melancholy portrayal of one who was left behind, the one-time fiancee of Irish writer JM Synge, Molly Allgood, is visited in later life.

Synge died young and Molly never seems to have recovered from the loss of her one true love. A poignant tale with exquisite prose, but reading it is not a happy experience.
