CHARACTERS A Goat's Song SUMMARY ☆ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF ✓ Dermot Healy Dermot Healy ✓ 8 FREE READ An Irish playwright reimagines his estranged lover’s past in A Goat s Song is what I would class a perfect contemporary Irish novel and a perfect modern love story by love I mean star crossed love The real skill in the story is the format which flits forwards and backwards in time between different characters and their perspectives but this is effortless Healy does this with real skill It s rarely confusing always extremely literary but original and not laboured The story flows beautifully from Jack Ferris complex alcoholic writer fisherman lover to Jonathan Adams RUC man haunted by his failure in the church and violence in NI His desire to conuer Irish language and mythology land back to Catherine wreckless beautiful talented actress promiscuous flawed real seeming characters caught up in their place in time tangled by the politics of Ireland and NI The book spins a modern mythology with the tragedies of ordinary lives reflected in it The complex webs between the characters become a metaphor symbolic of the tragic relationship between Ireland and the North Two places that can never be together and can never be apart I didn t know a lot of the context in which some of the events took place and the book set the scene for these really well which as an Irish person helped to explain this recent enough part of our country s history For example I didn t know how sever the tensions were between people and how opening your mouth to express yourself was genuinely dangerous At times the plot can meander a bit than I liked but this was a small flaw in brilliant bookThe scenery in Belmullet is like an added character I loved the occasional references to goats throughout the tale tooAdditionally the book is a very honest account of how alcoholism can play out in Ireland and this is rarely confronted so honestly in our novels films etc
