Regular price $150.00 Sale

The first novel to be banned in Ireland, The House of Gold tells the tale of the Irish nation at a major turning point in its history. In the West of Ireland, the old ascendancy has been replaced by a corrupt native elite headed by the avaricious Ramon Mor Costello and his clerical accomplices. His beautiful wife is the catalyst for greed, priestly lusts, sexual frustration, alcoholism, and murder. Shocking stuff.
