Review In this elegant narrative of an ordinary growing-up, the extraordinary makes itself felt by the ease with which the story shifts from the everyday to major issues in literature and theology and philosophy, all mediated through a self-mocking wit at once doleful and affectionate. ...This is yet another wonderful Irish bildungsroman. Bernard O'Donoghue
