Please, how is Sebastian Barry a "British" author? He was born in Ireland, educated in Ireland, writes mostly about Ireland ("The Secret Scripture is set in Roscommon, I believe), and lives in Wicklow. British??

You're right, you're right, you're right. I apologize for the error and the offending passage has been changed to "Irish." Barry's a new author for me and I wrote "British" as a placeholder in the text while I checked his nationality, and then of course I never went back to check. Doesn't make it right. Thanks for the call-out.

Ooh, you will have to do penance! I suggest maybe reading another Irish book... Here's a good site to find authors, if you're interested: http://www.irishwriters-online.com/lista_z.html
And for my part, I'm going to read "The Secret Scripture", sometime in 2009. Cheers!

Ah, penance. You ARE getting into the spirit of this post! I will do it, gladly. That's a fantastically useful site (of Irish writers) you've sent; thank you! Cheers right back at you--and do let me know what you think of this one when you read it. It was interesting but I don't know that I can do another Barry anytime soon.
