About Tribal Gods
The place Dublin. The time early 1970s. Rose Leahy and Grace Donovan have been friends from childhood.
With the new freedoms the time offers, Grace embarks on a series of erotic adventures with several lovers.
The more conservative Rose remains true to the traditional values of marriage and motherhood. Then the northern violence casts its dark shadow southwards with the Talbot Street bombing . . .
