One can hear Healy's voice as he narrates the story of Joe-Joe and Blackbird and their extended family. This is a novel about community and bonds across generations in Western Ireland. Healy says nothing directly, and communicates the texture of life in Western Ireland without relying on much plot. An authentic and original voice. Recommended.
