Product description

Review

The great spirit of Frank McGuinness radiates in this magnificent novel. Myriad voices converge on one glistening core; it is a high-wire act earthed in the deepest humanity.

(Sebastian Barry)

spectacular

(Sunday World)

there’s a lovely sense of connection in reading this novel by the playwright McGuinness, a connection to the rest of the writer’s oeuvre … gorgeous … a challenging and rewarding read

(The Herald)

invested with a weighty, parable-like intensity

(Times Literary Supplement)

prose that could be described as musical … it is hard not to be charmed … elegant and thoughtful, often funny, never dull or repetitive

(Irish Echo)

curious, unique and unsettling ... this book demands and deserves to be approached on its own terms

(Sunday Independent)

wonderful

(Woman’s Way)

a novel infused with an understanding of everyday life – the language laced with wit and McGuinness’ panache as a playwright evident in the story as each character takes to the stage

(Belfast Telegraph)

for a novel based in rural Ireland there is freshness to the remote Donegal setting … strikes an unusual note

(Nomoreworkhorse.com)

this is McGuinness’s first novel after many years as a prolific and successful playwright. It is a transfer he makes with great ease … the structure of the book cleverly makes the most of his strengths and skills as a playwright. Each chapter gives a distinct voice its stage and each voice adds to the tale and nudges it along

(Nomoreworkhorse.com)
