LONGLISTED FOR THE MAN BOOKER PRIZE 2018

SHORTLISTED FOR THE COSTA NOVEL AWARD 2018

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.

I struggle to think of a writer who has been so prolific and consistent in quality as Ryan . . . Brutally honest, moving and often hilarious * Guardian * An engrossing, unpredictable, beautifully crafted novel; Donal Ryan is giving us characters - their angles and their language - that we haven't seen in Irish literature before. -- RODDY DOYLE Donal Ryan has not only bounded over a wall into new territory, but built himself a castle there . . . This is a superb novel. -- JOHN BOYNE From a Low and Quiet Sea is not only very cleverly constructed, but deeply moving too. I loved it. * Louis de Bernieres * Donal Ryan writes characters so well that as a reader you think `I've met that man', or `I know that woman.' But as a writer you simply wonder `how does he do it?' From a Low and Quiet Sea is brutal and beautiful, carefully crafted portraits, deep and real, tied together, fashioned by a true artist. I absolutely loved it. -- KIT DE WAAL
