After reading Carroll's American Requiem, I was eager to read this novel. The story revolves around the ethnic divisions in Boston and the experience of Irish Americans in particular in the Kennedy era. Carroll's characters are not as predictable as some, although their experience is representative. The dynamic between the two main characters is interesting, and the textual flow keeps you thinking. I recommend this novel to anyone who is of Boston Irish heritage, or finds the ward politics of that time period enthralling!

I was given this book by a friend and put off reading it -- thought it would be just an okay book. I have been disappointed since I finished it! It is one of those books that you just never want to end. Carroll's writing is wonderful and leaves you hungry for more. It's a must read for everyone but especially those from the Boston area. Enjoy.
