The Gasp

Presently plugging along in Redemption Falls. I told my friend Ed last night that it recalls Angle of Repose. I should qualify that statement with the proviso that whereas Stegner is overly concerned with the natural West, there are few digressions in Redemption Falls on the topography of the region or its fauna and their eternal struggles towards shelter and reproduction. No, O'Connor addresses the health of the Irish soul in a time of civil war and then in the crucible of the unsettled west.
