Reviews

Novel of the year is My Coney Island Baby, by Billy O'Callaghan, a lush, precise, poetic account of a love affair that ends the way most love affairs do. We knew O'Callaghan to be a master of the short story, and here he shows the grand reach of his powers as a novelist. -- John Banville * Irish Times *Books of the Year* *
Billy O'Callaghan's new novel grips from the opening page. The stride of his sentences is long and powerful, his vision raw. A spectrum of intensities from grief to love is revealed as relationships unfold with an honesty that is utterly believable. -- Bernard MacLaverty
O'Callaghan [has made a] significant achievement in this fine novel... Good books remind us of other good books and in its treatment of adultery this one calls to mind thematic ancestors such as Madame Bovary, Anna Karenina and The Scarlet Letter. -- Bert Wright * Sunday Times *
A poignant, piercing meditation on middle age and the passing of time... these characters will linger with you long after the book is closed. -- Claire Kilroy * Guardian *
Quiet, subtle and deeply moving... This is a fine novel, with elegance and wisdom lying beneath an unpretentious surface and O'Callaghan, a gifted writer, has managed to do that most difficult of things: take a quiet, almost everyday story and transform it into a thing of beauty. -- John Boyne * Irish Times *
