This is not a fast, plot-driven book so if that’s what you’re looking for, don’t even pick it up. It’s a gentle read, quite dark in places and quite, quite slow to the point of meandering. In fact, it goes at John McGahern pace so if you’re not a fan of his writing, then you’re unlikely to like this. But if you’re happy to take your time on the road of a book, turn down a few blind alleys, get lost, then this could be one for you. It’s a memoir told using an unusual technique: the framework story of a man facing the breakdown in his marriage and struggling to find a role for himself in this new, altered world is told in the third person. The flashbacks to his childhood are told in the first and in the present tense. There are some beautiful moments (the elaborate burial ritual of the pinkeen (tiny fish) had me laughing out loud). It is charming, beguiling and, in the end, redemptive, definitely one to savour. It came into my hands in unusual circumstances (explained here, if you’re interested: http://www.berniemcgill.com/2011/09/t...) and I’m glad that it did.
