The sea is slowly eating into the land and the hill with the old watchtower has completely disappeared. The nearest house has crumbled and fallen into the sea. It is Ireland in the late twentieth century.
Eamon Redmond is a judge in the Irish High Court. Obsessed all his life by the letter and spirit of the law, he is just beginning to discover how painfully unconnected he is from other human beings. With effortless fluency, Colm Toibin reconstructs the history of Eamon's relationships—with his father, his first "girl," his wife, and the children who barely know him. He gives us a family as minutely realized as any of John McGahern's, and he writes about Eamon's affection for the landscape of his childhood on the east coast of Ireland with such skill that the land itself becomes a character. The result is a novel that ensnares us with its emotional intensity and dazzles with its crystalline prose. In The Heather Blazing, Colm Toibin displays once again the gifts that illuminated The South, a book described by Don DeLillo as "a grand achievement," and by John Banville as "a daring imaginative feat...a splendid first novel."
Saturday: 5-1 Overall: 12-6 . Military Bowl Navy (10-2, 7-1 American Athletic) vs. Pittsburgh (8-4, 6-2 ACC) Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium, Annapolis, MD (34,000) 1:30 PM CT/2:30 PM ET ESPN Eamon McAaney, Rocky Boiman, Quint Kessenich Refs:... Reynolds, the Navy senior quarterback, has set the all time career mark for rushing TDs in FBS with 85. The 5’11″, 205 pounder from Antioch, Tennessee has rushed for 1,229 yards and 21 TDs averaging 5 yards per carry and 102. 4 per game this season. But his career has been magnificent, and he’ll try to finish it off with a bowl win and cap an 11-2 season for the Midshipmen. Reynolds doesn’t pass much, but he’s pretty decent when he does. He’s 52-of-98, 53%, for 1,077 yards and 7 TDs against 1 int. His favorite target is Jamir Tillman, who has caught 27 passes for 570 yards and five, 7′s. Fullback Chris Swain is a load to tackle at 6’1″, 245. Swain has rushed for 909 yards and 10 TDs. The Panthers are going to have to somewhat slow down Reynolds and Swain to have a shot at victory. On defense, defensive end Will Anthony leads the team in tackles for loss with 11. 5 for -82 yards and sacks with 7. 5 for a loss of -58 yards. Navy has just nine ints on the season. Running back Qadree Ollison has rushed for 1,048 yards and 10 TDs in place of superstar running back James Conner who injured a knee before the season started and was lost for the year. The 6’2″, 230 pound Ollison has been stellar in his place. The redshirt freshman is a load to tackle and is capable of making house calls when he gets into the secondary. In the passing game, quarterback Nate Peterman has completed 180-of-293 passes, 61%, for 2,150 yards and 19 TDs against only five TDs. His main target is 6’2″, 200 pound junior wide receiver Tyler Boyd, who caught 85 passes for 873 yards and 6 TDs. Tight end J. P. Holtz, a 6’4″, 250 pound senior, has caught 24 passes for 350 yards and four 7′s. On defense, the Panthers can bring some lumber under first year coach Pat. Source: david white
