'Beautiful and affecting' David Nicholls
'An engrossing, unpredictable, beautifully crafted novel' RODDY DOYLE
Farouk’s country has been torn apart by war.
Lampy’s heart has been laid waste by Chloe.
John’s past torments him as he nears his end.
The refugee. The dreamer. The penitent. From war-torn Syria to small-town Ireland, three men, scarred by all they have loved and lost, are searching for some version of home. Each is drawn towards a powerful reckoning, one that will bring them together in the most unexpected of ways.
'Brutal and beautiful, carefully crafted portraits, deep and real,
tied together, fashioned by a true artist. I absolutely loved it.' - KIT
'Beautifully written, compassionate and almost unbearably moving. I loved it. I would struggle to think of any other Irish author working today who writes with as much compassion as Donal Ryan.' - LOUISE O'NEILL
'It’s a beautiful, luminous kind of piece - full of mystery, compassion, woven with such skill; heartbreaking and restorative. I will carry these splintered men around with me for a long time, along with the women who have loved them.' - RACHEL JOYCE
