Mark O'Sullivan's gripping novel, taking place in 1921 when the Irish War of Independence is drawing to a close, is as forceful as the character of Enright himself. The story hovers between the real and the imagined, between tenderness and violence, between myth and memory. Enright's voice haunts, revolts, sometimes amuses, and ultimately reveals the secret of survival--"defiant tenacity.
