The Vogue Summary

The Vogue by Eoin McNamee

'A wonderfully eerie, tragic read. I read it with my heart in my mouth.' Anna Burns author of Milkman An unforgettable novel of ghosts, lies and the the past, from the prize-winning Eoin McNamee Late 1944, and two teenagers dance the Vogue in silence on the projectionist's floor of the Pirnmill Aerodrome. She draws the outlines of their footwork in eyebrow pencil on the white sheet. He loses their bet. Decades later, a ghost returns to Morne to identify a body found in the shifting sands. Names have long since been changed; children long since cast out; lies long thought forgotten. Set against an eerie landscape, awash with secrets, The Vogue is a grimly poetic dance through the intertwined stories of a deeply religious community, an abandoned military base, and a long-shuttered children's Care Home.
