.... I'm really struggling with this book. The critics comments on the front cover sold it to me ie "brilliant" etc. I've now read 200 pages and covered 50 years! The writing style has thrown me. It has come back to the same theme so many times, through the eyes of poets, artists etc, telling the same tale of yearnings for a national identity.
OK, the story should be told, but it's more of a montage than a chronological history.
