Star of the Sea : A Postcolonial/Postmodern Voyage into the Irish Famine

The Salesman, 1998

This novel, described in a starred review by Publishers Weekly as “a narrative brilliantly blending past and present,” follows the story of Dubliner Billy Sweeney as he takes justice into his own hands, following a brutal attack on his youngest daughter while she was working at a petrol station (“The Salesman”). After a disappointing legal verdict, Sweeney kidnaps the instigator of his daughter’s attack, Donal Quinn, resulting in a “horrifically cruel game of psychological cat-and-mouse that evolves between prisoner and tormentor” (“The Salesman”).
