With a clever freedom of language, the author mixes wit, satire and legend in a collage-like drama of delight. This mixed bag of inventive narrative never allows one's imagination to relax. The savory descriptions and literary/historical references make for a brilliant and whimsical book.
Reviews for Desmond MacNamara's
The Book of Intrusions
"Exhuberant . . a boisterous modern fairy tale, replete with
folklore motifs, stories within stories, improbabilities and
wonders, and little acts of literary homage"
Michael Dirda, Washington Post
"A masterpiece of hilarious insincerity, a fictional mad-hatter's
extravaganza; in short, a read that is almost too funny for
Rudiger Imhoff, Linen Hall Review
"An extraordinary novel. . . Outrageously funny"
Pat Byrne, Irish World
'This magnificent novel [is] a sheer delight . . . Flamboyant
both in imagination and in practice, MacNamara has given us
a wondrous display."
Thomas McGonigle, Chicago Tribune
MacNamara shows a deft touch—not to mention a thoroughly
wicked wit—in spoofing the conventions of the novel, the
process of literary creation, and recent Irish history. He writes
with an assurance impressive in a first novelist.
