Comment: PROFESSIONAL SELLER SHIPPING TOP QUALITY BOOKS WITHIN 24 HOURS.100% MONEY BACK GUARANTEE Well-loved but cared for, and still very readable. The previous owner has certainly very much enjoyed reading this book more than once, therefore please be aware there will be some creasing on the spine or slight shelf wear. If it's been in their collection for some time, say years old or more, some pages might be discoloured and there may be other minor age blemishes, but that won't affect its readability. Shipped from the heart of the British countryside this book will leave our library within a day or two of your order and be with you shortly thereafter.

Product description

Review

Roddy Doyle called Johnston the best writer in Ireland. Mesmerising, powerful fiction (Red)

Has many pleasures to offer the reader: elegance of style, sureness of touch, and above all the author's radiant descriptive gift (Independent)

Compelling and very beautiful

(Spectator)

Her writing is a joy: dialogue snaps with life while Johnston's distinctive prose is at once supremely comfortable and delightfully brisk

(Daily Mail)

She has won the Costa (formerly Whitbread) Prize (THE OLD JEST), the Evening Standard Best First Novel Award (for THE CAPTAINS AND THE KINGS), the Yorkshire Post Award, Best Book of the Year (twice, for THE CAPTAINS AND THE KINGS and HOW MANY MILES TO BABYLON?). She has also been shortlisted for the Booker Prize with SHADOWS ON OUR SKIN, and won the Irish Book Awards Lifetime Achievement Award, whose previous recipients include Edna O'Brien, Seamus Heaney, John Banville and John McGahern.
