Praise

“A deeply moving story of courage and fidelity.”—J.M. Coetzee, Nobel Prize-winning author of Disgrace

“A modern masterpiece.”—The Boston Globe

“Barry succeeds admirably in creating complex individuals who find themselves trapped in a brutal reality.”—Los Angeles Times

“Wrenching…[Barry marches] bravely into the darkest, most dangerous terrain of human nature.”—The Christian Science Monitor 

“Nobody writers better about the trenches of the First World War than Sebastian Barry. In brutally effective prose he lays bare and celebrates the heroism of the young men whose livers were lost on the killing fields of France. His great gift is that he makes you feel he is reporting events that he’s witnessed first hand.”—Peter Sheridan, author of Everything Inch of Her 

“This is Sebastian Barry’s song of innocence and experience, composed with poetic grace and an eye, both unflinching and tender, for savage detail and moments of pure beauty. It is also an astonishing display of Barry’s gift for creative a memorable character, whom he has written, indelibly, back into a history which continues to haunt us.”—Colm Tóibín

“Lyrical…Willie Dunne’s voice, like his dilemmas, has the resonance of authenticity.”—Hew Starchan, author of The First World War

A Long Long Way is one of those novels that, as you turn it over in your mind, may just stay with you a long, long time.”—The Denver Post
