Her debut novel, Solace, was rapturously received, but Tender, Belinda McKeon's unforgettable second, is a masterful and moving examination of human relationships that confirms the Brooklyn-based Irish novelist as a major international talent. Similarly profound in its mapping of a triangular love affair, in this case in strike-afflicted 1980s South Wales, Wayne Price's Mercy Seat is the eagerly-awaited first novel by this Scotland-based Welsh writer.
