From the acclaimed author of the international sensations City of Bohane and Beatlebone, a striking and gorgeous new novel of two aging criminals at the butt ends of their damage-filled careers. A superbly melancholic melody of a novel full of beautiful phrases and terrible men. In the dark waiting room of the ferry terminal in the sketchy Spanish port of Algeciras, two aging Irishmen -- Maurice Hearne and Charlie Redmond, longtime partners in the lucrative and dangerous enterprise of smuggling drugs -- sit at night, none too patiently. It is October 23, 2018, and they are expecting Maurice's estranged daughter, Dilly, to either arrive on a boat coming from Tangier or depart on one heading there. This nocturnal vigil will initiate an extraordinary journey back in time to excavate their shared history of violence, romance, mutual betrayals and serial exiles, rendered with the dark humor and the hardboiled Hibernian lyricism that have made Kevin Barry one of the most striking and admired fiction writers at work today.… (mer)

Beautiful. Elegiac. Barry’s noisy squawking Irishmen recounting their drug heists and lovers in a quiet smelly Spanish seaport.

Meaning in every greasy raindrop in the gutter.

This is without doubt the most original prose I’ve read in years. ( )
  MylesKesten | Jan 23, 2024 |
Barry's inventive structure propels the reader through a kaleidoscopic narrative that jumps between time and place freely. Barry paints engrossing scenes that engage the reader through each of these vignettes that peel back a layer of backstory from the two main characters.

While Barry's throwing of caution to the wind when it comes to form is laudable, there's a dissatisfaction that remains once you reach the end. The emptiness isn't from a want for a resolution to the story, which there isn't. Instead you're left with a desire to have continued jumping through the messy timelines and the varied places between Spain, Morocco and Algeria.

Lovely prose. Toss in a plot and you got yourself a book. ( )
  Mcdede | Jul 19, 2023 |
The terse life stories, both cruel and funny, of two Irish drug dealers recounted over the course of a day while they wait in a boat terminal in Algeciras, Spain. It clearly owes something to Beckett and probably to Joyce. The dialogue is both humorous and crude and begs to be read aloud especially if you can do an Irish accent. ( )

Easily the worst book I have read in the last 12 months.
No story at all
Short 4 work sentences- most of the time with no punctuation- very James Ellroy at his worst!
No quote marks so half the time you have no idea which Irish degenerate is talking.
Lots of meaningless Irish slang.
Nothing interesting about the two main characters.
Nothing happens throughout the book.
How do books like this get so much attention? ( )
