This Is the Ritual


When I think of Ireland, John-Paul Finnegan said as we stood on the deck of the ferry while it pulled out of Holyhead, I think of a limitless ignorance. And not just an ignorance, but a wallowing in ignorance, akin to the wallowing in filth of a pig or a naked, demented savage.

-Rob Doyle, “John-Paul Finnegan, Paltry Realist,” in This Is the Ritual: Stories
