Langrishe, go down; a novel by Aidan Higgins( Book )

57 editions published between 1966 and 2008 in 9 languages and held by 658 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Langrishe, Go Down 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 erotic and occasionally melancholic prose, comes to represent not only the invasion and decline of this insular family, but the decline of Ireland and Western Europe as a whole in the years preceding World War II."--Jacket
