Farley loved his wife; fell apart after her death; sought someone who reminded him of her. The previously blurred significance of various images, such as a baby and a lake from an adult nightmare, throbs into painful focus. The different incarnations of Dublin are illuminated — the wealth before the recession, the Irish football team's success during the World Cup, the H-Block demonstrations in , the bank strike and Nixon's visit in The history of the building in which Farley works also unfolds: lately corporate and anonymous, it once housed sisters, a suicidal tailor, a ballet school.
We find out how Farley developed his love of Italian opera and how he met his future wife and her kid sister, as well as his own family dynamics. Chronologically inverted narration can, in inexperienced hands, be jarring, but here, the billowing to life of individuals previously deceased is like time-lapse photography of flowers, viewed in reverse: the dying and dead bloom into blossom, throb with vibrancy, then recurl into buds, poised with fresh foetal hope. Dwyer Hickey's writing is acutely insightful and perfectly balances sorrow, joy and humour.
Weepingly moving passages are juxtaposed with hilariously irreverent dialogue worthy of Roddy Doyle. Dwyer Hickey's flair is apparent in the smallest touches, such as the "black apostrophe of a cat on a wall". Yet lyricism is not achieved at the expense of humanity. This stunning novel has at its core the pulsing heart of love that drives the circulation of every being, but it also incorporates themes of ageing, betrayal and change.
The initial premise may not seem promising — an old man is struck down towards the end of his life; just one of the billions of individuals constituting the mass of life and death. But as with all history, the fascination and heartbreak is in the richness and complexity of every life examined. You can find our Community Guidelines in full here.
