THE HOUSE WITH THE GREEN SHUTTERS

A story remarkable for its power, remarkable for its originality, and remarkable for its success.  The unique masterpiece of an unfortunate young author, who died without knowing the unstinted praise his work was to receive.  The book portrays with striking realism a phase of Scottish life and character new to most novel-readers.  John Gourlay, the chief personage in the drama, inhabitant of the “House With the Green Shutters” and master of the village destinies, looms up as the personification of the brute force that dominates.  He stands apart from all characters in fiction.  In the broad treatment and the relentless sweep of its tragedy, the book suggests the work of Dumas.

“If a more powerful story than this has been written in recent years we have not seen it.  It must take first honors among the novels of the day.”—­Philadelphia Item.

“One of the most powerful books we have seen for a long time, and it marks the advent of a valuable writer.”—­New York Press.

“A LAD OF THE O’FRIEL’S”

This is a story of Donegal ways and customs; full of the spirit of Irish life.  The main character is a dreaming and poetic boy who takes joy in all the stories and superstitions of his people, and his experience and life are thus made to reflect all the essential qualities of the life of his country.  Many characters in the book will make warm places for themselves in the heart of the reader.

THE SQUIREEN

Mr. Bullock takes us into the North of Ireland among North-of-Ireland people.  His story is dominated by one remarkable character, whose progress towards the subjugation of his own temperament we cannot help but watch with interest.  He is swept from one thing to another, first by his dare-devil, roistering spirit, then by his mood of deep repentance, through love and marriage, through quarrels and separation from his wife, to a reconciliation at the point of death, to a return to health, and through the domination of the devil in him, finally to death.  It is a strong, convincing novel suggesting, somewhat, “The House with the Green Shutters.”  What that book did for the Scotland of Ian Maclaren and Barrie, “The Squireen” will do for Ireland.
