"When John Davey inherits a small farm in remote Connemara he finds himself the centre of attraction with the locals as he battles to transform the ramshackle buildings into an artists' retreat. But as he is drawn into the gossip, comedies and tragedies of his neighbours' lives, he becomes part of a world where 'thoughts have no pattern'. Soon he discovers that there's more fun in imbibing 'mountain tay', fishing for trout and watching the 'blue charm' of the evening light, and that 'here it is not difficult to pass whole days with little achievement'." "Charged with the resonances of a fading Gaelic way of life, Ben Birdsall's sure-footed first novel captures a society caught between a haunted past and an unsteady future."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
