Vintage. 1998. Paperback. Very Good. From the Publisher A crisp clean softcover, no markings throughout: For Cal, some of the choices are devastatingly simple... He can work in an abattoir that nauseates him or join the dole queue; he can brood on his pas t or plan a future with Marcella. Springing out of the fear and violence of Ulster, Cal is a haunting love stroy in a land were tenderness and innocen ce can only flicker briefly in the dark. History Editor First published in 1983, this lyrical novel, superficially straightforward but full of stories within stories, first brought Bernard MacLaverty's work to public attention. In the novel, a young Irish Republican Army operative who wants to break the cycle of violence seeks out a woman whose Ulster po liceman husband he helped to murder. As their relationship grows, so do Cal 's guilt and sorrow, until, in the end, he is forced to make a sacrifice of himself in order to gain redemption. Rich in ideas and history, this book helps us understand the situation in Northern Ireland-- which "is not just t here," MacLaverty has remarked, "as a colorful background." Robert Wilson Powerful...Cal is a love story as affecting and tragic as you could want... as finely crafted as a short story.-- USA Today Michael Gorra A most moving novel whose emotional impact is grounded in a complete avoidance of sentimentality...-- The New York Times, Vintage, 1998
