Description



Winner of the Guardian First Book Award 2013 Shortlisted for the Dublin IMPAC Literary Award 2014 Longlisted for the Man Booker Prize 2013 Winner of Book of the Year at the Irish Book Awards 2012 'Funny, moving and beautifully written' Edna O'Brien In the aftermath of Ireland's financial collapse, dangerous tensions surface in an Irish town. As violence flares, the characters face a battle between public persona and inner desires. Through a chorus of unique voices, each struggling to tell their own kind of truth, a single authentic tale unfolds. The Spinning Heart speaks for contemporary Ireland like no other novel. Wry, vulnerable, all-too human, it captures the language and spirit of rural Ireland and with uncanny perception articulates the words and thoughts of a generation. Technically daring and evocative of Patrick McCabe and J.M. Synge, this novel of small-town life is witty, dark and sweetly poignant. 'Filled with light and shade, love and tragedy ... if it was a song you could sing it' Anne Enright 'Donal Ryan is the real deal. ... a brilliantly realised, utterly resonant state-of-the-nation landscape' Sunday Independent 'I can't imagine a more original, more perceptive or more passionate work than this. Outstanding' John Boyne 'It's furious, it's moving, it's darkly funny, it punches you right in the gut' New York Times
