Nunn So Mighty by Mac McClure is an intense family drama about family secrets. Angus Roy Murphy greatly admires his grandfather, Theodore Thomas Nunn. Angus’s story takes you back to his childhood, where he roams freely back and forth to where his grandparents live, and the only forbidden zone to his full rein is the attic that stays locked and the key is hidden. This only amplifies Angus’s curiosity to discover what is hidden behind the attic. Tragedy strikes that further pushes his curiosity to uncover the truth about his grandfather. A family secret will be revealed, one that will shed light on a conflict between father and son that has been the source of palpable violence.
Every once in a while you find a novel like this, that seems to flow as you read along, and you are taken by the peculiarities of the characters. Uncle Bo has that particular accent and the heft of an ordinary working fellow. With his nephew Angus thirsty for answers about the mystery surrounding his grandfather, you can sense how Bo walks a tightrope in making an effort to be honest yet cautious to make Angus know well enough but not too much. Nunn So Mighty does an interesting thing with the Irish immigration experience. Mac McClure shows you another side of the Great American Dream that is contrary to many of the common hopeful impressions. McClure’s gritty writing is as impressive in its own way as Puzo’s Fortunate Pilgrim. It’s a must-read drama that is strongly driven by characters motivated by a family mystery that screams for answers.
