The other is actual: the city of Derry in the Northern Ireland of the 40s and 50s; a place that is also haunted by political enmities, family secrets, lethal intrigue.

One of the Best...........

by irishbooklover on Mar 22, 2007

I haven't read this book in quite a while but I chose this as my first book review simply because it's one of my favorite books. People tend to review this against 'Angelas Ashes', but other than they are both set in Ireland I don't see much comparison. Seamus Deane's writing here is like reading paragraphs of poems and there are ghosts everywhere, living and dead. I don't remember putting it down once I started.
