The result of mounting tragedy, the response of man in conflict, and the sentiment that ensues, Dear Vanity is a heart-tugging, spellbinding coming-of-age novel set on the fictional, beaten shores of Ireland’s Trinity in the early twentieth century. By way of winding narration and increscent tension, Dear Vanity explores some of the prominent questions of human fallibility through the eyes of an impressionable and confused boy on a mission to discover something greater, only to face comprehensive loss.
