  • Résumé

@2@An unforgettable saga of love, loss, and exhilarating change spanning half a century in the lives of a restless family, from the author of the acclaimed novel @18@The Law of Dreams.@19@@16@@18@@95@#160;@19@@16@@18@The O@12@Briens@19@ is a family story unlike any told before, a tale that pours straight from the heart of a splendid, tragic, ambitious clan. In Joe O@12@Brien@95@mdash;grandson of a potato-famine emigrant, and a backwoods boy, railroad magnate, patriarch, brooding soul@95@mdash;Peter Behrens gives us a fiercely compelling man who exchanges isolation and poverty in the Canadian wilds for a share in the dazzling riches and consuming sorrows of the twentieth century.@16@@95@#160;@16@When Joe meets Iseult Wilkins in Venice, California, the story of their courtship@95@mdash;told in Behrens@12@s gorgeous, honed style@95@mdash;becomes the first movement in a symphony of the generations. Husband and wife, brothers, sisters-in-law, children and grandchildren, the O@12@Briens engage unselfconsciously with their century, and we experience their times not as historical tableaux but as lives passionately lived. At the heart of this clan@95@mdash;at the heart of the novel@95@mdash;is mystery and madness grounded in the history of Irish sorrow. @18@The O@12@Briens@19@ is the story of a man, a marriage, and a family, told with epic precision and wondrous imagination.@3@
