Beschreibung

'Excellent, a very powerful and moving piece of work' Roddy Doyle

One powerful novella, with two thematically linked short stories on either side of it, forms the basis of EVERYTHING IN THIS COUNTRY MUST. Although these are stories about Ireland and the Troubles, they have an almost mythical rather than a political feel. In the title story, four young soldiers help a farmer and his daughter free their horse from a stream in flood, unable to understand that their help will never be anything but an insult. In the novella, Hunger Strike, a young boy and his mother flee to Galway as the boy's uncle succumbs to a hunger strike in a Derry gaol. In Wood, a ten-year-old boy is asked by his mother to make poles for the marching season.

Colum McCann was born in Dublin in 1965. His fiction has won numerous international awards including the Rooney Prize, the Ireland Fund of Monaco Princess Grace Memorial Award, a Pushcart Prize, and Esquire magazine's Writer of the Year award in 2003. In 2005 he was nominated for an Oscar for Best Short Film. He was recently inducted into the Hennessy Hall of Fame in Dublin. His work has been published in twenty-six languages. He has travelled widely and is based in New York, where he lives with his wife and children.

The title story tells us in a Faulkerish style about an encounter of the british occupying forces and a Northern Ireland girl and her uncompromising father; the second about a son and a practical mother who is doing business with Orange Lodge Parade people. The longest and deeply impressive story is about a boy whose uncle is on hunger strike in the notorius H-block prison. A quick read that stays a long time in the mind! Amazing and excellently written!
