The Pig Goes to Hog Heavenby Joseph Caldwell
Synopses & Reviews
Kitty, Kieran, Lolly, and Aaron--the main characters of the previous two Pig Trilogy novels--would be expected to be living happily ever after at this point. But nothing is settled or as expected in Caldwell's new tragicomedy (of the kind that only the Irish can compose): Disappeared characters rematerialize, romances that seemed dead burst back to ardent life, and even Taddy and Brid, Castle Kissane's comely spirits, resolve themselves into much-longed-for conclusions.
And the pig who started it all by rooting up the bones of the past and tipping many lives topsy turvey eventually goes wee wee wee all the way to a very unexpected home.
As this conclusion to the Pig Trilogy makes clear, "it ain't over till it's over"--in fact, nothing formerly resolved in the previous two works is settled. Not, at least, until a little pig goes wee wee wee all the way home.
