A wonderful book, but not your ordinary book, set in a time and place where your occupation could be rear gunner in a bakery van: Ireland during the Troubles. The endearing heroine, known for reading 19th century novels while walking, tries to escape the claustrophobic savagery without success, becoming a stalking victim of a local paramilitary. The explosive mixture of violence and humor is something that Irish writers do magnificently well.
