KIRKUS REVIEW

This sequel to In the Time of Greenbloom, though not as good as the first book, offers a story which is tightly constructed and which successfully evokes the atmosphere of Ireland of the 1930's. It observes John Blaydon as he pursues his erratic medical studies in Dublin's Trinity College. A thwarted romance, the betrayal of a friendship, and an encounter with Greenbloom which results in his missing his final examinations force him to leave the Ireland which he now despises. A compelling, if not too substantial, portrayal of a sensitive and brilliant young man and the complex University world in which he develops.
