Book of the Month for May 13: = The Whereabouts of Eneas McNulty by Sebastian Barry
A beautiful, sad book. Eneas McNulty is an
innocent set loose in a world treacherous and unforgiving but he remains
gentle, kind and amazingly generous through all that befalls him……..
Known in England as a playwright, novelist and poet, Sebastian Barry
brings all the attendant skills to this stunning novel, with its theme
of the parallels between a personal life and the political life of a
country, in this case the fiery history of 20th century Ireland…..In
another author’s hands this epic of dislocation could well be a bitter
one….the reader, at least, has the delightful distraction of Barry’s
prose, in which the occasional Joycean notes are entirely subsumed by
the author’s own colloquial brilliance…… less a novel than…..a
latter-day Aeniad. (from Amazon)
