About The Book

THE HOUSE ON ECCLES ROAD records the events of June 16th 1999 in Dublin, Ohio. Molly and Leo Bluhm wake up together - and proceed to spend the day apart. Leo tends to his busy schedule as a college professor, Molly merely passes the time - hums Irish tunes as she does the housework, chats to neighbours and meets an old love. All too aware that it is their wedding anniversary, and that her husband has forgotten, a series of scribbled notes and telephone messages reflect Molly's frustration, as she struggles with the fact that he needs reminding at all. Meanwhile, Leo breezes through the day with a careless nonchalance, catching too late the messages left for him by his wife. In this momentous novel, Kitchen weaves these and other voices into a tapestry of a single day, an ordinary day, yet a day that might change their lives forever.
