Praise for Long Time, No See

“A grand read, funny and provocative…tenderness and affection win out despite gunfire, despite ancient jealousies and grudges.” —Annie Proulx, The Guardian

“Funny, sad, wild, tender, profound, brilliant…Ireland’s finest living novelist.” —Roddy Doyle

“A family saga bristling with curiously appealing oddballs and misfits.” Entertainment Weekly

“Healy’s first novel in ten years is a triumphant return…A beautiful account of one person’s acceptance of his own quiet heroism.” Library Journal

“Highly stylized, chock-full of colorful dialogue, and steeped in Irish idioms, this is a leisurely read about ordinary folk acting out the dramas that make a life.” Publishers Weekly

“Compassionate and elegiac…a celebration of the whole gift of existence…everyday chores and family obligations are elevated to the level of epiphany.” The Times Literary Supplement

“Unforgettable…Nothing happens, but everything happens. Times passes. People die. It all seems so true to actual life, so tangible and authentic…so real you feel you could step into the book and live there.” The Sunday Independent

“Terrific and exhilarating…Healy’s characters have mouths full of poetry… the poetry of the everyday, laconic, idiosyncratic, and wonderfully droll…Every page is a pleasure to read and the entire book is, as one of Healy’s characters might put it, an astonishment.” The Sunday Times

“A richly compelling comic-sad tapestry of love and death in which, like the pauses in a Pinter play, truth lurks in what’s left unsaid, catching us off guard.” The Independent
