Praise

NAMED A MOST ANTICIPATED BOOK OF THE YEAR BY THE GUARDIAN, THE NEW STATESMAN, THE IRISH TIMES, THE JOURNAL, AND THE OBSERVER

‘Wondrous and bold. I’m in awe of Kevin Barry and endlessly inspired by his work’
—Lisa McInerney, author of The Rules of Revelation

“Kevin Barry lights out for the territory and once again comes back with a shining nugget of gold. The Heart in Winter is a glorious and haunted yarn, with all the elements – the doomed lovers, the bounty hunters, the knife-fights and whisky-soaked songs – brought to mysterious life by the heft and polish of the Barry sentence. Marvelous.”
— Jon McGregor, author of If Nobody Speaks of Remarkable Things
 
“A haunting, hypnotic love story of two damaged souls. Barry’s talent is breath-taking—he is a true original and, once again, words obey his call. This is a propulsive read from a writer at the height of his powers.”
— Mary Costello, author of Academy Street
 
“[B]y turns funny and tragic, full of typically outrageous figures and sublime writing.”
The Observer
 
“Barry’s voice…propels us through [his] work, through paragraphs punctuated by turns of phrase that deliver little jolts of pleasure.”
— Francine Prose, author of A Changed Man
