THE LAST SEPTEMBER depicts the tensions between the longing for love and the yearning for freedom, between longstanding tradition and radical social change, and the attractions and terrors of political, spiritual and even sexual emancipation. The story follows the end of an era, the demise of British rule in Ireland and, with it, the passing of an Anglo-Irish aristocracy (the wealthy heirs of English immigrants in Ireland, who sound and appear English, although they consider themselves Irish) that had survived for centuries.
