Milkman: A Novel Cover Image
$16.00
ISBN: 9781644450000
Availability: On Our Shelves Now

Published: Graywolf Press - December 4th, 2018

Given the chance, Milkman will become your world. Classify it as an unconventional historical novel about The Troubles in Northern Ireland. A tightly woven community is tenuously held together by oblique conflict and social codes. This novel is centered around "Middle Sister" who is not alone in lacking a proper name: only referents are used. I am still amazed at how much Anna Burns was able to eloquently pull off: there is the lack of names,and then the extreme intimacy, the heavy weight vocabulary, the frenetic pacing, and everything else. Engrossing, difficult and so so wonderful.
