Irishman Sebastian Barry writes literary fiction about his countrymen during wartime. His leisurely paced plots are moving, bleak, and heartbreaking; alienation and loneliness are ever present. Barry's masterful characterizations reveal how long-term pain and sadness will either crush or strengthen the sufferer. His language is evocative and lyrical, offering both a strong sense of place and a charming, poetic atmosphere. The importance of family, the IRA, and the subjugation of the Irish figure prominently in Barry's work.
