Beginning in Ireland in the early years of the 19th century, the four Foley brothers flee across the country with their father and the large telescope he has stolen. Soon forced apart by the violence of the Irish wilderness, the potato famine, and the promise of America, the brothers find themselves scattered across the world. Their separate adventures unfold in passionate and vivid scenes with gypsies, horse races, sea voyages, and beautiful women. An epic narrative on the meaning of love and home and family, The Fall of Light is a dazzling novel by one of the most promising novelists writing today.

Not my favourite book so far by this author but, as always, some exquisite passages throughout. The beauty of his words is exceptional.

This work may be a more appealing yarn for men and/or those of Irish decent.

Then there fell upon them (an) infamous snow ... It fell in large thick flakes. Each was like a piece of paper, torn fragments of some broken treaty between heaven and earth.
