Tar and Feathers follows the dynamics of a severely dysfunctional Irish family and hits on themes of physical abuse, incest, and criminal behavior. The father is an unemployed criminal who serves various stints in prison and directs his anger physically at his family. When I write, at some point, a couple of characters will come to mind and over a period of time a story will emerge around these characters.

Tarring and feathering is a form of public torture and humiliation used to enforce unofficial justice or revenge. It was used in feudal Europe and its colonies in the early modern period, as well as the early American frontier, mostly as a type of mob vengeance. The victim would be stripped naked, or stripped to the waist. Wood tar (sometimes hot) was then either poured or painted onto the person while they were immobilized

I absolutely loved this book. The depression and hopelessness that it is centered on is so captivating i found it to be naustolgic. I loved the different points of views we were able to gain insight with by making three narrators instead of just one. What i loved even more is that no matter who was speaking, this air of utter helplessness, sadness and loneliness were always profoundly visibly.

I especially loved the parts when the mother would narrate. I loved everything she had to say and how it consumed me and how i could relate to it in one way or another was suprising, alarming yet i feel it easy for anyone to relate to. Her desire to be show she is loved and how that desire, since not filled by her husband, is hopefully sought out by her through her son. It makes her flirtations and obvious comeons to her son somewhat understandable. Though they are still perverse and wrong, we understand where she is coming from and why she is doing it.

Overall this book was just such a joy to read. Not that it was uplifting in any direct way, but reading it gave me a rush and an excitement that can indirectly be called an uplifting feeling.

Da, Ma and Benjee are living in Ireland and are anything but the typical couple (or family). Da has been in jail for exposing himself. Ma has a slightly incestuous relationship with her son and Benjee is a weak-spined lad with no real hope or outlook. Nothing much happens to these people, but there is a lot going on in their heads. Unfortunately, none of it is really pleasant or positive.

Each character narrates their own story, but you are never really sure who is talking at any given time or what is going on. You never have a sense of movement to the plot and are left wondering whether something has happened or whether it was all in the mind of the character. The ending is the same as the start and you've just spent 133 pages going nowhere and learning nothing about yourself or the characters.
