Unmoored. Sure if it wasn’t for dark humor in Ireland, we’d have no humor at all. Caoilinn Hughes brought me laughter and sadness as she presents the travails of the Black family in her novel titled, The Wild Laughter. Set in 2008, we meet paterfamilias Chief facing bleak times, his children engaged in sibling rivalry, and all the man wants to do is die. Hughes is a sharp observer of family devastation, and her prose sings on these pages as she encourages both smiles and tears.
Rating: Four-star (I like it)
