Sarah Davis-Goff's writing has been published in the Irish Times, the Guardian and LitHub. This is her first novel. She was born and lives in Dublin.
Davis-Goff has crafted a beautiful, lyrical, and guttural examination of what it takes to love and survive in a world shaped by loss and violence. This is a magnetic novel pulsing with life. It is truly remarkable and unforgettable -- Sarah Schmidt, author of SEE WHAT I HAVE DONE LAST ONES LEFT ALIVE combines the spare poetry of THE ROAD with the dizzying pace of 28 DAYS LATER. A beautiful book, lyrical in its violence, painting in vivid strokes the joy and brutality of the human experience. An original, brilliant take on the end of the world. -- Jennie Melamed, author of GATHER THE DAUGHTERS Beautifully written and terrifying. 'Last Ones Left Alive' will leave you reeling, not only from its originality and searing vision, but also from the humanity of the relationships portrayed -- Kate Hamer Last Ones Left Alive gripped me as much by the heart as it did by the throat. A stormer of a debut, Davis-Goff has created an urgent, assured, terrifying tale of destruction, humanity, and love -- Kiran Millwood Hargrave A riveting novel. The fierce, unflinching voice of Orpen stayed with me long after I finished the last page. It is often grim, even terrifying, but through it all I was reminded that even in the darkest times, love and human decency can survive -- Eowyn Ivey This dystopian future Ireland will unnerve and intrigue and thrill readers everywhere -- Donal Ryan I will be cursing Last Ones Left Alive for seriously troubling dreams for weeks to come -- Patrick Gale A triumph. A confident, assured debut from one of the most exciting new voices on the Irish literary scene -- Louise O'Neill A debut novel of jaw-dropping skill and immense power, a shimmering dystopian vision but also a lucid meditation on tenderness, intimacy and courage. From the get-go it gripped me, and since the last page I've been haunted -- Joseph O'Connor
