Ever since I come up North I been scuffling to get enough money to send for my daughter and get a little two- three-room apartment for her and me to stay in. Money they're going to throw away anyhow, so they might as well throw some our way. Before long they move to a thousand-seat theatre called the Tambourine Temple. Laura, I was borned to bad luck.

It is all of it as bleak as only the West of Ireland can be. Every page sings with evocative dialog, deft character sketches, impossibly perfect descriptions of the physical world. No fun, you might as well die.
