Hauntingly beautiful in its use of language and its evocation of the far country of childhood, this is an exceptional and boldly original first novel. Conor O'Donnell's world, the world he will "make" from the "clink and chatter" of encircling adults, is that of a small boy being reared in a south Donegal kitchen bar in the 1940s. By using a kaleidoscope of shifting impressions of singing and drinking, of rambling arguments about the war, of the electrifying rows between Conor's mismatched parents, the author reintroduces us to the emotional and imaginative life that children live, inside and beyond the world of mere facts.
