With all those around him becoming soldiers of a different kind, however, it proves to be the defining decision of his life when, having witnessed the murder of a fellow RIC policeman, he is wrongly accused of identifying the executioners. With a sentence of death passed over him he is forced to flee Sligo, his friends, family and beloved girl, Viv. What follows is the story of this flight, his subsequent wanderings, and the haunting pull of home that always afflicts him. Tender, witty, troubling and tragic, "The Whereabouts of Eneas McNulty" tells the secret history of a lost man.Hide synopsis

Most of us have a kind of control over our destiny and rarely make choices that unwittingly condemn us to eventual suffering and hardship. Eneas McNulty does, however, and ends up wandering. a kind of Irish Aeneas, fleeing from his Irish Troy into other infernos. Sounds cheerful! In the hands of Sebastian Barry, though, a marvellous sculptor with words, you cannot help but be drawn into the life of this unfortunate - at the end, I felt uplifted and grateful, almost as if I, too, had come out of an epic journey, alive and wiser. Thank you, Mr. Barry.
