    Arimathea

    By Frank McGuinness

    It is 1950. Donegal. A land apart. Derry city is only fourteen miles away but too far, mentally, for people to travel there in comfort. Into this community comes Gianni, a painter from Italy.

    A book of close observation, sharp wit, linguistic dexterity – and of deep sympathy for everyday humanity.
