    This is a great debut novel by Léan Cullinan, written from the first-person perspective of the heroine, Cait Houlihan, and set in Dublin. A recent arts graduate from Trinity, she is now working for a small publishing house while trying to maintain her social life with former fellow students who all seem to be living far more glamorous lives than her, and indulging her hobby by singing in a local choir. She lives in a flat owned by her uncle, for which she pays only nominal rent, and her life and daily routines seem perfectly mundane and ordinary with the tedium occasionally broken by visits to family, with whom she retains close ties.
