'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
