VOLUME 1: THE LONG SLIDE, is a vivid evocation of a bygone city of linen mills, tobacco factories, shipyards and liquor saloons, a meticilously detailed recreation of the destruction of a way of life, and an often witty, sometimes deeply moving, occasionally shocking account of how ordinary, decent people can be brutalised by prejudice and mutual suspicion. THE LONG SLIDE is a true epic of war and peace - the first volume of what is possibly the first truly great, 2-volume Belfast novel.
