Review

Breathtaking ... A dark secret and a frozen journey through the fraught terrain of parenthood drive this brave, exhilarating novel . Every sentence in Parks's book is felt. The author has weighed up each word and considered every image, electing only those that carry sufficient freight to bear the reader to his intended destination Park takes this emotional terrain of parenthood as both his setting and his subject, and creates something exhilaratingly brave and powerful from its jagged peaks and troughs (Claire Kilroy Guardian)

Another beautiful offering from Northern Ireland is David Park's Travelling in a Strange Land, though I accept that it'll make my giftees cry buckets (Lisa McInerney Irish Times, Books of the Year)

David Park's Travelling in a Strange Land was a beautiful, intensely human study of fathers and sons that I'd gladly share (Brian McGilloway Irish Times, Books of the Year)

This lucidly written and deceptively simple narrative by the highly regarded Northern Irish novelist David Park
is the story of a troubled journey into the self and out into the world again, towards some glimmer of generosity and redemption

(Sunday Times)

A tense, tense, thrilling, strange and profoundly moving study of parenthood. There isn't a wasted syllable in this short, beautiful book (Donal Ryan Irish Times)

Moving and eloquent - stays with you long after the final pages have melted away (Donal O'Donoghue)

Sombre, but unsolemn, with a redemptive, tingling finale, this is a small book bursting with big emotions (Anthony Cummins Daily Mail)

A deeply felt novel . of personal tragedy and failure . There is no false piety in this sometimes desperate, always measured novel, but a compassionately observed, manifestly flawed redemption (Irish Times)

It is time to call David Park what he is - a very great writer. Travelling In A Strange Land is an eruption of love and sorrow, overwhelmingly compassionate and wise, hearing the heart break and maybe even heal, bearing the deepest testimony to the love, unending love, binding parent and child. A mighty book (Frank McGuinness)

An extraordinary novel, at once startling and quietly brilliant. David Park is a one of Ireland's great novelists and this is, perhaps, his best (Roddy Doyle)
