    PDF READ A Goat's Song 'A Goat's Song' is what I would class a perfect contemporary Irish novel and a perfect modern love story by love I mean star crossed love The real skill in the story is the format which flits forwards and backwards in time between different characters and their perspectives but this is effortless Healy does this with real skill It's rarely confusing always extremely literary but original and not laboured The story flows beautifully from

Jack Ferris is an Irish Catholic writer of plays occasional crew man on a trawler off the West Coast deeply self obsessed and uite a serious alcoholic Catherine Adams is the daughter of a sergeant in the Royal Ulster Constabulary who had been a Loyalist and a fierce Presbyterian She is an actress starting out in her career which might be thought to supply a basis for a relationship and indeed we know from the start of this book that she is acting a part written by Jack with her in mind There are no serious spoilers in this review the book starts near the end of its story and travels back in time But there are an awful lot of obstacles to this affair lasting beyond the early flush of physical attraction a force known to undermine all sensible boundaries It seems to me that the novel concerns the efforts by Jack Ferris to understand the nature of those obstacles and to somehow devise a path through them that might translate lust into love In the process we are shown many features of the sectarianism and that divides Catholic from Protestant in Northern Ireland though it does not seem to me that the book is intrinsically judgemental or inclined to either side The issues are just there in the foreground dominating two lives in which politics has no part to play but cannot easily be escaped This makes it a Romeo and Juliet scenario in some ways The old stories are always a good model for the new I am interested in the language of this novel On Christmas morning in Chapter 6 Jack s alcholism is addressed and he writes He sat immobile in front of his desk His mind was trying to make a leap into the dark but his hands would not comply His thumb and forefinger were numb If he tried to write they froze And inside his head language no longer arrived grammatically but surfaced as a series of bizarre signs p60 All the same Dermot Healy sets out his account in the most grammatical and clearly precise terms and there is no uestion that he achieves his intended effect with great skill I wonder if that explains why the book is uite hard work at times and took a relatively long time for me to read There are signs at times of a struggle to achieve his desired effect If the language in his character s head is not grammatical why is the novel so grammatical If it is a series of bizarre signs then where are they on the page Don t get me wrong here I am not pouncing on a failing in the work of a very impressive writer and pointing out a blemish Rather I am thinking aloud and comparing this style of writing to alternatives such as that of Eimear McBride in A Girl Is a Half formed Thing I just find it an interesting idea to compare the two the apples and oranges the different aspects of the one great project which is writing truthful fiction
