An exquisitely-crafted tale of love and loss from the author of Four Letters of Love and Only Say the WordLove is not easy, especially if you find the woman of your dreams and then lose her ? as Philip Griffin and his son Stephen each discover in turn. Stephen is just a boy when his mother and sister are killed in a car crash, and his father never recovers from the accident: he wasn't involved but is consumed by grief, his only desire to be reunited with his wife. Before that happens, though, Philip wants to ensure the happiness of his son, Stephen ? now a grown man. 'As it is in Heaven, Niall Williams' tale of love and tragedy, will leave you in tears' Tatler 'A bitter-sweet novel about passionate love giving way to commitment, grief to a sort of healing' Irish Times 'A tender and sober novel with a faith in romance that is absolute' Daily Express 'Delicious coincidence and tragedy, as extraordinary lives unravel and intertwine' Guardian
Niall Williams was born in 1958 and lives in Kiltumper, Ireland, with his wife Christine and their two children. He is the author of three other novels, including Four Letters of Love (which was sold in over twenty countries and an international bestseller) and, most recently, Only Say the Word.

From Our Editors

  When he loses his mother and sister in a tragic car accident, protagonist Stephen Griffith becomes so introverted he practically disappears inside himself. Seeing violinist Gabriella Castoldi performing in a dumpy little West Ireland hotel changes all that as he undergoes a remarkable transformation in Niall Williams’ As It Is In Heaven. Griffith and Castoldi form a liaison, albeit brief, before she heads back to her home in Italy. There, with a baby growing inside her and Griffith in a desperate search to find her, it is inevitable that fate should play its hand and see the two together once again. This is a sad, moving and beautifully written tale of love, death, heartbreak and all other emotions required in being human.
