The Whereabouts of Eneas McNulty

by Sebastian Barry
£8.99   paperback  Faber and Faber (2006)

The Whereabouts of Eneas McNulty by Sebastian Barry Following the end of the First World War, Eneas McNulty joins the British-led Royal Irish Constabulary. With all those around him becoming soldiers of a different kind, however, it proves to be the defining decision of his life when, having witnessed the murder of a fellow RIC policeman, he is wrongly accused of identifying the executioners. With a sentence of death passed over him he is forced to flee Sligo, his friends, family and beloved girl, Viv.
 
What follows is the story of this flight, his subsequent wanderings, and the haunting pull of home that always afflicts him. Tender, witty, troubling and tragic, The Wherabouts of Eneas McNulty tells the secret history of a lost man.

"It's the language that seduces you - elegant, comical, tragical, musical. It's a symphony of a novel and you'll sing along and wander with Eneas into the next century."
(Frank McCourt)
