The Temporary Gentleman

(2014)
(The third book in the McNulty Family series)
A novel by

 

"FASCINATING AND MOVING, [IT] SHOWS SEBASTIAN BARRY TO BE ONE OF OUR FINEST NOVELISTS-DARING, ACCOMODATING AND HUMANE."
John Banville


Jack McNulty is a 'temporary gentleman', an Irishman whose commission in the British army in the Second World War was never made permanent. In 1957, in his lodgings in Accra, he sets out to write his story. He is an ordinary man, both petty and heroic, but he has seen extraordinary things. He has wandered the world - as a soldier, an engineer, a UN observer - following his childhood ambition to better himself.
