A Boston Globe best book of 2016 THIS IS THE STORY OF FIVE MARRIAGES AND ONE GUN A British couple wonders at the unknowable city beyond their guarded compound while building walls between themselves. An American suspects his new home is having an insidious effect on his Zimbabwean wife and their young daughter. An enthusiastic young intellectual follows his wife to the city and finds only danger and disillusion. An intelligence officer loses a crucial piece of evidence. It will cost him his marriage, his mistress, and maybe his life. An impoverished taxi driver and his wife find a gun in the cab. From this point on, all their lives are tied to the trigger. In C.B.

The Shaping of Water is a character-driven story, following the different but overlapping lives of those who are connected to a ramshackle cottage by a man-made lake in Central Africa during the Liberation wars across its region. The characters are connected in ways they can't imagine by past secrets and future tragedies. Will these connections remain hidden or be uncovered by the characters' decisions and actions? From Patrick the Jesuit, to Andy the Selous Scout; from Marielise, lover of revolutionaries Jo and Luke, to Margaret the banker’s wife; from Natombi and Milimo whose home is drowned by the lake, to Manda, a young woman trying to make her marriage work; the characters are shaped by the rising lake and increasing violence in Africa. The dramatic plot is about damage and survival, passion and uncertainty, adaptation and love, set against a background of escalating war. It tells the story of a world turned upside-down by cynical politicians and reinvented by the courage of ordinary people. Enriched by a detailed knowledge of the history, geography and environment of the region and the variety of its fully realised characters, this book has wide appeal. The novel is imbued with the light, colour and flavour of the landscape, of the lake and of the cottage. The reader will discover new worlds through this riveting novel and remember them long afterwards. The author has spent most of her life in Africa and lived through the events described in this book. Unique in its context, breadth and depth of insight into a particular period of time, in a little-explored place, this book is economic in style, evocative and well written. The Shaping of Water is a good read with characters and a plot that will affect your heart, challenge your ideas, and remain in your memory. It will appeal to intelligent and thoughtful lovers of good fiction, travellers and explorers – both actual and armchair.

This book serves to introduce a young and talented writer to a much wider audience and to situate his work within the more exciting and radical tradition that is the Irish avant-garde. The literary impetus evident in Graham Gillespie’s writing is similar to that of the mystical writers of old, whether Irish or Continental, Christian or Jewish. The beauty of the poetic and philosophic insights explored in this book is something new and fresh in Irish writing. Whether exploring the universal questions that are doubt and hope or stretching the sinews of language in the search for true self-identity and its expression, Gillespie’s art generates a new and profound experience. As with mystics such as Jabes, he has penetrated the silent desert of his own heart; he has bravely ventured into the unknowable, the unconscious, that same place where Merton found the “lush tangle of life and death, full of danger, yet where beautiful things move, the deer, and where there is a spring of sweet water buried.
