The Heather Blazing is a wonderful character study of a man, his childhood, family, and community.

Colm Tóibín's The Heather Blazing details the life of Eamon Redmond, a judge in Ireland's high court, a man remote from his wife, his son and daughter and, at least outwardly, his own childhood. The life he has built for himself, between his work in Dublin and his family's retreat by the sea at Cush, is distinguished by order and by achievement. When, like his beloved coastline, it begins to slip away, he is pulled sharply into the present and finds himself revisiting his past.

'Proceeds with stately grace from past to present, incident to incident, slowly forming, as it moves, the full shape of a man’s public and private life.'
Washington Post

'It is impossible to read Tóibín without being moved, touched and finally changed.'
The Independent on Sunday
