Edward Garnett in his introduction to this book suggests it is the best book to come out of Ireland for a long time. The feeling of the old Anglo-Irish mansion, and its racial story is symbolical of the English invaders’ conquest and finally losing their grip of the Irish countryside. This story is an intimate sketch two generations- the lusts for old-fashioned courtesies on the one hand and the brutal frankness of which has become the conscience of the younger generation.
