Reviews

It's a symphony of a novel, and you'll sing along and wander with Eneas McNulty into the next century.--Frank McCourt, author of Angela's Ashes

Magnificent...No one who loves fiction will want to reach the end of this bewitching, penetrating, unforgettable book.--San Francisco Chronicle Book Review The story that emerges through Barry's lens is so cohesive, so gracefully rendered, that his words have the stony allur eof the Irish poetes and the lyrical pull of an epic storyteller...A beautiful story.--The Boston Globe From the first sentences of the book we know we are in the hands of a master storyteller with important things to say about history and the individual's role in it. Eneas's gripping and tragic story serves as a reminder of the fine line that exists between hero and murderer, politician and criminal.--The Wall Street Journal Barry's language is honed to an impressive edge... There's not an ill-wrought sentence here, and most of them glitter and spin off the page with the kind of impact that begs for them to be read aloud.--The Cleveland Plain Dealer Sebastian Barry uses the language with great imagination but never overwrites. This book is a wonderful gift, in every sense.--The Washington Post Barry endows Eneas with so much gentleness that we can't help caring about him...Above all, it is the splendor of the writing that rivets our attention. Barry is a spellbinder in the great Irish tradition.--New York Newsday Barry brings beautiful and poetic language to bear on a painful and unsettling part of Irish history...A surprising and emotional novel; high recommended.--Library Journal
