In the countryside of western Ireland, young Michen O’Kane is going mad. Skittering along the outskirts of his village, feared by former neighbors, he becomes enchanted by the redheaded Eily, a vivacious young mother. She and her little boy will soon be found murdered in Cloosh Wood. Based on a true story, In the Forest floats in and out of viewpoints: O’Kane recounts his miserable, abused youth; Eily mourns a lost romance. O’Brien, always a lovely stylist, has created a dreamy novel of impulses — both kind and murderous. B+
