But listening to stories of his mothers shame at the hands of Allied soldiers in the aftermath of the Second World War, along with his German cousins mysterious disappearance somewhere on the west coast of Ireland, he felt the strengthening of historys determined grip.A job at the harbor, rather than offering him respite, entangled him in a bitter feud between two fishermen—one Catholic, one Protestant. Against the background of the spiraling troubles in the North, Hugo listened to the missing persons bulletins going out on the radio for his cousin and watched as the unfolding harbor duel moved toward a tragic end.The Harbor Boys, deeply moving and well observed, brilliantly charts a young man as he battles inheritance and struggles to place himself in a world of his own making.
