Colin Marks's review
Jan 19, 2013
Colm Toibin's 'The Heather Blazing' is a masterclass in understated prose. The book follows the High Court judge Eamon Redmond, with flashbacks to his early years. The writing is sparse, lacking any emotion, mimicking Eamon's state of mind, despite several key events in his life. I liked it and would recommend the book, but did feel a little bit of purple prose wouldn't have gone amiss.
