Requiem is beautifully written in a style which combines poetic feeling with a scrupulous attention to the truth of things. It is an enchanting and lyrical portrait of childhood and growing up. Requiem probes the tragi-comedy of Irish convent Catholicism with a rare power and sensitivity. It continues to disturb the reader long after it is finished. The story of Cecilia's adolescence is exuberantly told, with moments of near-Joycean epiphany. The plot is tight and the narrative startling.
