A Year’s Midnight is that rare beast, a truly literary page-turner. A compelling and witty black com-
edy, it draws readers into the edgy relationship between George and his partner Barbara, as they at-
tempt to spend a relaxing year in rural Italy.
But their plans all go awry as between drinks, recriminations, a poltergeist and sinister childhood
memories, their relationship disintegrates. Soon George is walking a fine line between mysticism and
madness. His loving artist partner is alienated by his unpredictable mood swings. Failing to see why he
pays so much attention to a mysterious nearby field, she is drawn into the arms of their landlord
“A Year's Midnight is a wonderful and beautiful piece of work – written by
someone who has the eye of a painter, the ear of a listener and the pen of a
poet. A book that entwines sensual delight with wry humour, landscape with
lunacy – a joy from first to last.” John MacKenna
“Disturbing, heart-warming and with generous amounts of darkly funny
moments, O’Driscoll’s despair has a witty and lyrical edge that means you
never get sucked so far into the darkness that you stop enjoying the journey.
Buon viaggio...” Shelley Marsden The Irish World
