Intriguing novel by this author who is mute and paralyzed - he had to type it by having someone hold his head while he tapped at a typewriter with a stick attached to his forehead. His use of language is especially well honed, painstakingly descriptive and unusual. This is a well thought-out story, a rich saga of rural Ireland in the 20th century, spanning 80+ years of a feisty individualistic woman. A good read, and I really enjoyed it.
