”My vice is the Victorian vice of sentimentality, not the modern vice of irony,” states Juliet Taylor, the narrator of this light, slightly sweet, and happily irony-free first novel. Juliet is the worldlier of the Taylor twins who have left their native Tipperary, Ireland, to attend university in Galway. The ethereal Juno tries her hand at acting and attracts plenty of male attention — wanted and unwanted — while Juliet nurses a crush on her Modern English tutor and tries to figure out why college kids take such delight in complaining about everything. Irishman Gough winningly captures the excitement and ennui of leaving home and discovering the world in Juliet’s honest, refreshingly romantic voice.
