'Every Single Minute' is a novel by inspired by the force of honesty - a moving portrait of an Irish writer dying of cancer. Visiting Berlin for the first and last time, she is remembered, in prose of arresting directness, by the book's narrator.

At last, at a performance of the opera 'Don Carlo', she realises the true cost of letting memory dictate the course of her life. From the author of 'The Speckled People' the uplifting and heartbreaking, 'Every Single Minute' is the story of a candid friendship, full of affection and humour, and of reconciliation, hard-won at long last.
