Eugene O'Neill is a four-time Pulitzer Prize winner, and he was awarded the Nobel Prize in literature in 1936. Series: Library of America. To simply read "Long Day's Journey Into Night" or "A Touch of the Poet," while examples of great writing, can be overwhelming. I'll never write like that. it seems more possible. Some of them were staged, mostly in Provincetown. They are apprentice work and deal with O'Neill's personal agenda: drinking, tuberculosis, suicide, the sea, unstable relations, father and son conflicts.

Eugene O'Neill, whose plays include "Long Day's Journey Into Night" and "The Iceman Cometh," moved to California in hopes of finding a peaceful place to write. When the O’Neills arrived, they discovered they’d been given a room without a double bed, which enraged the amorous couple. He would come out of his study at the end of a day gaunt and sometimes weeping, Carlotta said later.

The force of the writing made me feel as though I were on the receiving end of an untamed blast of feeling and thought.

Nothing prepared me for what I found in that little volume. The force of the writing made me feel as though I were on the receiving end of an untamed blast of feeling and thought. O’Neill’s characters were ugly, twisted, unhinged, embarrassing. The emotional stakes in the plays were enormous and unmanageable, which-for a budding adolescent-meant that they felt entirely normal.

8 Days Without End (1933). In fact, to use the word "interview" in connection with him is to employ almost a misnomer. Certainly it is an inapplicable designation.

Oh, the great Sebastian Barry. I believe he's one of the greatest prose writers living today. Though his narrator is Ireland-born, another member of the McNulty clan, he has moved him this time to the American west and then to the Civil War. The story is immense and intimate, horrifying and tender. For all the brutality, the frozen trauma of wartime, it is, at its heart, a love story. No one I can think of writes like Barry, no one writes with such lyric beauty, even in its darkest moments. It's the gifted language of an Irish master -- a true master -- and I'm very grateful for it. He's going to win the Man Booker for this one, mark my words.
This book is beautifully written, but I appreciated it more than I enjoyed reading it. In lyrical first-person prose, Barry tells the story of Thomas McNulty and his closest companion John Cole. These two soulmates meet as teenagers in the 1850s and fight alongside each other in the Indian Wars, then the Civil War. Along the way, they take in an orphaned young Sioux girl named Winona and the three of them form a makeshift family.

It's a story that's both brutal and tender, its poignancy quietly sneaking up on you. I was reminded at once of Cormac McCarthy and Annie Proulx. McNulty and Cole are the kinds of characters you don't usually encounter in these narratives; they're comfortably aware of their love for each other and find a way to carve out a life together whatever way they can.

The prose was tough for me to get through, though. As much as I liked the characters, it was so plot-driven that I wished it had forgone the dense war scenes and straightforward plot advancements for more focus on the characters. I know it was written the way it was deliberately, and I'm not saying it didn't work. I just would have preferred something different.

I think there will be people who really love this book, and then people like me who appreciated the hell out of it for what it was, but are happy to move on once finished.
Seb Barry writes gorgeous prose. He also casts a keen, critical eye upon Ireland's diaspora and its religious divide. His earlier novel, A Long, Long Way may be the best anti-war novel I've ever read. If it doesn't break your heart you haven't got one. It was with great anticipation that I started Days Without End but a bit of disappointment upon completion. The story is told in masterful prose. Sentences are strung together like pearls on a necklace. And the premise is quite promising. An Irish immigrant over to escape the potato famine of the 1840s has struck out for the West. Thomas McNulty meets American John Cole and they fall in love, starting a life together. First rather hilariously, as teenage boys dressed up as young ladies--dance partners for horny gold prospectors. Later, less amusingly in the U.S. Cavalry and the Indian Wars.

I really appreciated the subversive plot.....at first. Barry makes two men together in the army during the 19th Century seem plausible. Then subversive seemed to flip to "blarney" and at times I felt like I was watching an episode of Modern Family. Our gay cross dressers, now troopers leave with an adopted Sioux orphan and head off for a career on the stage with Tom so comfortable in drag, why bother to change after a performance? Why indeed. The subversive, or "blarney" sections are contrasted to some truly gruesome recounting of Indian War massacres (by US Army regulars) and later the horror of our Civil War and Andersonville. The implausibility piles up with a trip to Tennessee that would have little appeal to any right-minded folk and a "lucky" gold piece stopping a bullet to the heart. More than once I wished the author had tamped down his imagination.

I would certainly encourage others to read Days Without End and judge for themselves. If not perfect, there's much to enjoy. I just felt at times the swings were too wild going from an American Folkloric "Tall Tale" to being trapped inside of a Matthew Brady photograph of corpses and carnage. By the end, the pendulum had swung too many times for my taste.
I loved this book. Terribly sad subject material but beautifully written. I almost stopped reading early on as it was heavy going and was not a light and breezy holiday read, but am so glad I kept on going. The characters are divine and the bond between Thomas and handsome John Cole makes your heart sing. This is a wonderful book.
