schema:reviewBody""Hugo longs to be released from the confused identity he has inherited from his German mother and Irish father, but the stories of his mother's shame at the hands of Allied soldiers in the aftermath of the Second World War, along with his German cousins's mysterious disappearance somewhere on the West Coast of ireland, seem determined to trap him in history. His job at the harbour, rather than offering him respite, entangles him in a bitter feud between two fishermen - one Catholic, one Protestant. Against the background of the spiralling troubles in the North, Hugo listens to the missing persons bulletins going out on the radio for his cousin and watches the unfolding harbour duel which ends in a tragic drowning. Only then is he finally able to escape the ropes of history. "--BOOK JACKET."
