Item Description: Reprint Society, London, UK, 1952. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. h/b 287 pages, condition is very good, minor edge wear to the DJ. A novel that is alive from the first page to the last. The setting is a fishing village in the west of Ireland, where the folk are poor, the nets and tackle primitive, and even the canvas-bottomed curragh is still used. There is much narrative energy and towards the finish the suspense is tremendous. The characters are strongly and lovingly drawn. The writing has a force and eloquence that are almost always under control, and the dialogue crackles. This is the work of a poet who knows that, when he writes a novel, his first duty is to tell a story.
