If you love modern fiction and want an entirely new way of seeing and understanding the world around you, read this. The Milkman is set in an unnamed city in Northern Ireland in a city under siege during the “troubles.” The story is told over several months through and narrated by an 18-year-old unnamed character. She is trying to avoid the unwanted sexual attention and intimidation of a paramilitary figure known as the Milkman. She is trying to avoid him, but she is already standing out due to her reading while walking and taking a French night class. All she wants is to keep on with her quiet life, reading while walking, running, and seeing her maybe-boyfriend.

Now the Milkman’s unwanted attention has made her the target of rumour and gossip and has, perhaps, also made her a target of surveillance. Burns does an excellent job setting the novel in a specific place and during a specific time. She also excels at capturing the attitudes of the people living during the time of the troubles and the oppression and rules they follow in order to go on and try to lead ordinary lives. There are poetic moments buried in the rather dense prose which consists of some of the narrator’s ordinary activities but mostly covers her inner, introspective thoughts and musings. There is a lot of repetition and examination of a situation from different angles.
