Books Info:

The Heather Blazing free pdf Colm Toibin's second "lovely, understated" novel that "proceeds with stately grace" ("The Washington Post Book World") about an uncompromising judge whose principles, when brought home to his own family, are tragic.Eamon Redmond is a judge in the Irish High Court. Obsessed all his life by the letter and spirit of the law, he is just beginning to discover how painfully unconnected he is from other human beings. With effortless fluency, Toibin reconstructs the history of Eamon's relationships--with his father, his first "girl," his wife, and the children who barely know him. He portrays a family as minutely realized as any of John McGahern's, and he writes about Eamon's affection for the landscape of his childhood on the east coast of Ireland with such skill that the land itself becomes a character. The result is a novel that ensnares us with its emotional intensity and dazzles with its crystalline prose. In "The Heather Blazing," Toibin displays once again the gifts that illuminated "The South," a book described by Don DeLillo as "a grand achievement," and by John Banville as "a daring imaginative feat...a splendid first novel."
