author s two previous novels each won a major prize the Dublin Literary Award and the Goldsmith Prize and the author just after the Booker longlisting of this book had a short story short listed for the prestigious Sunday Times Short Story Prize This book started as a screenplay commissioned for Dublin Abbey Theatre but never performed it seems and has ended up as a slightly odd hybridAlternate

of a novel The dialogue itself is Beckett inspired with a sharp ear for two way dialogue between characters fully conversant with each other s history and character and how that can be conveyed both in words and in unspoken or unfinished sentences Much of it however is too masculine and in particular two sub UK gangster movie for my tastes and by the end on my first reading I rather tired of You wouldn t be right in yourself Maurice Which is the what Charlie and of the rather repetitive use of a single four letter word A second read bought out of the pathos and sense of loss that underlies the macho posturing The second part roams backwards in time and across Europe to provide the back story to the two parter and features some simply brilliant writing in its descriptions of countryside or weather The two characters in the first part are two 50 Irish gangstersdrug smugglers Maurice Hearne and Charlie Redmond they are searching for Maurice s early 20 s daughter Dilly who they believe will be passing through the port that evening on a Night Boat either to or from Tangier with a group of other crusties Alternate chapters fill in some of the back story of the two characters Dilly and her mother Maurice s wife CynthiaNow the author clearly has an outstanding talent for description particularly of weather or countryside take for example October The month of slant beauty Knives of melancholy flung in slivers from the sea The mountains dreamed of the winter soon to come The morning sounded hoarsely from the caverns of the bay The birds were insane again Or The peninsula ran its flank along the line of the coast road The mountain absorbed the evening light and glowed morbidly A roadside grotto showed the blue virgin For the souls of the vehicular dead By ten the moon was

too the vixen screamed On the ribs of the sea the last of the evening sun made bone white marks The hills for their part vibrated royally It was close to night and oh so uiet again And for evocative sentences written in a distinctive style And the pattern sound of the family at plan down on the strand shrieks soft coaxing recrimination There was a great stillness in the air The cathedral bells did not pierce but made a frame for it The hours were heavy and cumbersome and moved by like old horses The latter uote substituting for page after page of turgid dialogue in John Lanchester s The Wall also Booker longlisted Which makes the profane laden and rather clich d nature of so much of the dialogue such a shame I have seen it described as pastichehomage but that is just another way of

well as the shallow and ephemeral nature of the rewards of crime and their corrosive effect on longer term relationships The way in which past actions haunt the present is conveyed well in the mystical elements of the book But even here the concentration is on the criminals and their families not the real victims And in a year when the Booker has a great book Girl Woman Other concentrating on under represented groups in art and literature the gangster seems to me the exact opposite ludicrously over represented I was partly reminded of Lisa McInerney s two novels Glorious Heresies where I wrote that the often depressing subject matter violence nastiness of characters and behaviour sex drug taking and swearing is offset by the author s empathetic portrayal of the characters and their inner struggles and her ear for dialogue and her vivid and original use of imagery and language and The Blood Miracles where the balance shifted too far the other wayThis is somewhere in the middle in terms of the balance although there is little doubt that Barry s astonishing ear for language is some way ahead of McInerney s and to be honest ahead of most of his contemporaries Overall my
