Beschreibung

Willie Ryan arrives back in his home town in the central plain of Ireland, having escaped from an insane asylum where he was wrongfully incarcerated. Accused of violence by his strict Catholic family, the true reason for his imprisonment is a homosexual affair. When he returns, his family continues to insist on Willie's insanity hoping to bring about his reconciliation with the church. When Willie knows he is about to die, he agrees to a private family Mass, setting the stage for a confrontation that will pitch moral integrity against the "petty bourgeois snobbishness. hypocrisies and pretensions" of 1950s Ireland.

Pressestimmen

"Like sipping slowly at a glass of iced tea on a warm day, The Heaven of Mercury is a real treat to be savoured" The Bookseller; "The Heaven of Mercury hit me with a force like that of Fiannery O'Connor. This novel is graceful, patient, insightful and hilarious... The best novel of the year" USA Today; "This is a novel in which both the marvellous and the commonplace co-exist in a condition of such intimate ease that they can hardly be separated. Watson's lyrical evocations of the visionary and the bizarre mesh seamlessly with his descriptions of small town life" Guardian"
