With a mood akin to WUTHERING HEIGHTS--and indeed the spirit of Emily Bronte (Irish Times), Edna OBriens critically acclaimed novel WILD DECEMBERS charts the quick but sure demise of relations between the warring sons of warring sons. Here in the countryside of western Ireland, ancient feuds, romantic passions, and misguided ideas of fidelity blend together in . . . [a] heartbreaking story (Wall Street Journal) leavened by the human comedy of which OBrien rarely loses sight. A sister, a brother, and a stranger converge in a classic triangle, proceeding inevitably toward a climax that is Irish to the quick, violent and sad and, in a strange way, beautiful. Just like the novel itself (Washington Post). WILD DECEMBERS is a triumphant work from a writer who wears well the mantle of her Irish forebears and yet who, with each new novel, breaks new ground all her own. In this, her latest, readers could not ask for a more profoundly satisfying book (Boston Herald).
