      In scenes which shuttle backwards and forwards in time, from the cemetery to the home of the Langrishe girls, the central part of the story deals with the first, late, and last affair of Imogen Langrishe, thirty-nine, and a German who lives rent free on the estate, which lasts through two springs, two summers, three autumns and two winters. An eminently poetic book, Langrishe, Go Down (Higgins’s first novel) traces the fall of the Langrishes—a once wealthy, highly respected Irish family—through the lives of their four daughters, especially the youngest, Imogen, whose love affair with a self-centered German scholar resonates throughout the book. Their relationship, told in lush, erotic, and occasionally melancholic prose.
