Hand in Hand by Patricia McCarthy
‘Hand in Hand is a tour de force. McCarthy has dived into the current of one of the West’s most potent legend-myths – with all is psychological entanglements and ancient symbols – and brought to bear to it an enchanting range of voices, folklore images, verbal textures and poetic music.’ – James Harpur
‘Patricia McCarthy has performed a wonderful conjuring trick in this memorable sequence.’ – Peter Carpenter
