The Spinning Heart: A Novel

Donal Ryan


within the aftermath of Ireland's monetary cave in, risky tensions floor in an Irish city. As violence flares, the characters face a conflict among public personality and internal wants. via a refrain of targeted voices, each one suffering to inform their very own form of fact, a unmarried genuine story unfolds.

The Spinning Heart speaks for modern eire like no different novel. Wry, weak, all-too human, it captures the language and spirit of rural eire and with uncanny notion articulates the phrases and ideas of a iteration. Technically bold and evocative of Patrick McCabe and J.M. Synge, this novel of small-town lifestyles is witty, darkish and sweetly poignant.

Donal Ryan's brilliantly learned debut broadcasts a beautiful new voice in fiction.
