A suicide mystery and a rich patchwork narrative of legend,
myth, occult inheritance, eco-conspiracy, viral obsession, airwaves,
water and death, Shall We Gather At The River is a spellbinding
piece of work, marked by prose that is by turns haunting, poetic
and blackly humourous. With shades of Flannery OConnors
Wise Blood, Jeffrey Eugenides The Virgin Suicides, of Twin
Peaks and Wisconsin Death Trip.
The Sounds of John the Revelator will be the first of a series
of Revelator Orchestra albums, to be followed next year by The Brotherhood
of the Flood, inspired by Peter's forthcoming second novel Shall
We Gather at the River (published by Faber in January 2013). The
Revelator Orchestra will perform at the Caca Milis Masqued Samhain
Ball in Wexford Arts Centre on November 2, and at the Limerick Writers'
Centre on November 17, with more dates to follow.
