    Narration about man or state?

    A great book showing the hand of a great writer. Our hero is a High Court Judge who is the law, casting a cold eye on life while the state struggles with terrorism, nationalism and the religious secular divide. Toibin brings us through this man to his very soul and we find most human emotions and a humbling but noble past. A great journey and an insight to another world.

    the best fiction since mcgahern's amongst women

    the protagonist, Eamon Redmond suffers the lack of a mother in his childhood and this follows him to his adulthood, where he is unable to get 'close' to female and male members of his own family. This book deals with the landscape of ireland and metaphorically implies that eamon's life is like that of the land: eroding. this is highly appropriate as the heather blazing was first published in 1994, a time when the peace process in n.ireland was crumbling. excellent.
