Praise

Praise for Leonard and Hungry Paul … 

British Book Awards 2020 Debut Book of the Year Finalist

Irish Book Awards 2019 Newcomer of the Year Finalist

Radiant… A charming, luminous debut.” Kirkus STARRED Review  

“This quietly brilliant book is as funny as it is wise, as tender as it is ground-breaking.  Rónán Hession mines for gold in the modest lives and ordinary friendships that might appear unpromising to another writer, and my goodness, he finds it. It is also a happy book — and we need those.” — Diane Setterfield, author of The Thirteenth Tale

“A charming, warm-hearted celebration of all that is treasurable about everyday life.” — The Guardian

“Charming without being twee, this funny, warm book will bring you sunshine.” — The Irish Times

‘God, what a voice Ronan has. It is spectacular and already feels like a cult classic. I was absolutely hooked.’ — Donal Ryan, The Spinning Heart 

“For a book that defies convention I would heartily recommend Leonard and Hungry Paul. It’s as simple as it is unique … a celebration of kindness and having enough and being content — and living a life devoid of high drama and conflict. It’s very funny, and well-written, poetic in places. But above all it’s kind, a celebration of often overlooked people.” — Kit de Waal, author of My Name Is Leon

“This beautiful, heartfelt book is fed on wit and purpose . . . it challenges us to take happiness seriously. The result is that its readers may be nourished by it and in turn nourish others. Hession practices the gentleness he preaches, and gives readers a restorative glimpse of what a world based on embracing our best human quirks could look like. This is a novel to hearten us for whatever lies ahead.” — The Believer
