9780984629749: Brendan Malone: The Last Fenian

Based on true historical events, "Brendan Malone: The Last Fenian" is a folkloric satire examining the dark, destructive side of paternal love. Roscommon, Ireland-1910. A string of crop failures and botched rebellions had left the country a pitiful wasteland. Brendan Malone, a struggling Gaelic landlord and memberof the secret Irish Republican Brotherhood, succumbs to a midlife flare-up of nationalism, while his two sons climb the academic Olympus at University College Dublin. Dylan, primitive and compliant, clings to his overbearing father, while Hugh, anglicized beyond recognition, harbors his own ambitions that do not include liberating his native land. "M.J. Neary has added a well-crafted and finely researched novel to the genre." --Kenneth Weene, author of "Memoirs From The Asylum" "gripping read from beginning to end" --Gary Inbinder, author of "Confessions of the Creature The author has brought a difficult period of Irish history to life through a combination of historical and fictional characters. --Jim Dougherty, President of "The Wild Goose

From the Back Cover:

With unerring precision the multitalented Neary meticulously unfolds a family drama within the framework of the much bigger Irish drama that took place in the beginning of the 20th century. The showdown between father and son in this tale is the equivalent of a downright show stopper. The romance of the younger brother has the beauty of a Jane Austen tale. But at the end it all amounts to an Irish tragedy.--Bertil Falk, translator of Locked Rooms and Open Spaces 

Brendan Malone is a tragedy set in Ireland during the decade preceding the Easter Rebellion of 1916. With a discerning understanding of the political and socio-economic conflicts of the period, Neary skillfully weaves a dramatic narrative of a house divided, love and hatred, betrayal and revenge, guilt and expiation. Intellectually engaging, intense and visceral, Brendan Malone is a gripping read from beginning to end.--Gary Inbinder, author of Confessions of the Creature

From the Inside Flap:

For hundreds of years the British tried to conquer Ireland and the Irish fought back. From that struggle great legends appeared: tales of heroes and traitors, of love and suffering, and always, always of the human spirit. With Brendan Malone M.J. Neary has added a well-crafted and finely researched novel to the genre. --Kenneth Weene, author: Widow's Walk and Memoirs From the Asylum

 

The author has brought a difficult period of Irish history to life through a combination of historical and fictional characters.  The effect of this tragic period on an Irish family is heartbreaking.  The characters are well developed and very easy to make a personal connection with.  This is a tragic tale of how blind devotion to a cause can wreak utter destruction and cause you to lose all that you love.--Jim Dougherty, President of The Wild Geese
