Set against World War II, this is a tragi-comic tale of an Englishman who tries to start a potato farm in rural Ireland, and is mistaken for a hero by the locals — with bizarre consequences, escalating to accidental death, suicide, and murder.
“McGinley's story is by turns funny and ferocious. His characters live. His dialogue rings true. His world is as real as the book in your hand” — The Washington Post
