New York: Devin-Adair, 1949. Book Club edition. Large post octavo. pp. 256. Beige cloth, titled in purple. Signed by Patrick Kavanagh on front endpaper. A fine copy in good dust jacket with minor loss. Two strong new characters enter literature with publication of this novel. One is Tarry Flynn, peasant- farmer, poet, individualist. The other is Mrs. Flynn, his mother. Tarry loves the farm, casually, carelessly, with poetic fervour, as he loves his mother. And Mrs. Flynn clings to her land and increases it with single-minded passion. Tarry she holds, with no less devotion, to the homestead of his fathers until the time when he knows he must put on his good suit and walk away forever.
Earthy good humour, undercurrents of excitement, the ring of genuine personalities, against an authentic rural background are present on every page, a precise and perfect novel of its kind that brings its author, Patrick Kavanagh, into the front rank of new Irish writers, side by side with O’Flaherty, O'Faolain, O’Connor and O’Casey.
