Summary The Spinning Heart Donal Ryan Õ 9 Download The Spinning Heart Free download ↠ 9 In the aftermath of Ireland's financial collapse dangerous tensions surface in an Irish town As violence flares the characters face a battle between public persona and inner desires Through a chorus of uniue voices eac. The Tragic Demise of the Spinning HeartWho killed the heartI said the land ownerWith greed for kronerI killed the heartWho watched it dieI said the developerWith large loans of guilderI watched it dieWho caught its bloodI said the builderWith poor bricks and timberI caught its bloodWho ll make the shroudI said the sub contractorWith unpaid bills to factorI ll make the shroudWho ll dig the graveI said the bankerWith broad smiles and thankya I ll dig the graveWho ll be the clerkI said the regulatorwith my faulty calculatorI ll be the clerkWho ll be the parsonI said the deputyWith my land and propertyI ll be the parsonWho ll be chief mournerWe said the peopleWho elected the deputiesWe ll be chief mournersAll the towns in the landFelt a great stinging smartwhen they heard of the deathOf the poor spinning heartThat s my version of the moral at the heart of this book Donal Ryan s tale offers a nicely paced allegorical explanation for the demise of the Celtic Tiger that decade of borrowing and building that left Ireland with a rash of half completed apartment blocks a pox of unpaid debts and a severe bout of unemployment The story is spun out in a small rural town where the local building contractor has absconded leaving an uncompleted housing development and many debts to workers suppliers and would be home owners Things can only get worseRyan tells the story from multiple points of view the group of townspeople most directly concerned with the events each take their turn to give their version The author has succeeded in giving them all distinctly different voices but the piece that worked best from a writing point of view was the opening section in the voice of Bobby Mahon the section from which the powerful spinning heart image comes I ll be curious to read other writing by this gifted authorI apologise for the feeble uality of the rhyme it s not my strong point but the Who killed Cock Robin uestionanswer pattern fits the structure of this story perfectly As in the rhyme everyone in The Spinning Heart has a role to play in the events of the story and there is a lot of sighing and sobbing by the end
