Beatlebone

by Kevin Barry
£8.99   paperback  Canongate Books Ltd (2016)

Beatlebone by Kevin Barry WINNER OF THE GOLDSMITHS PRIZE
SHORTLISTED FOR THE IRISH BOOK AWARDS 2015
 
He will spend three days alone on his island. That is all that he asks... John is so many miles from love now and home. This is the story of his strangest trip.
 
John owns a tiny island off the west coast of Ireland. Maybe it is there that he can at last outrun the shadows of his past.
 
The tale of a wild journey into the world and a wild journey within, Beatlebone is a mystery box of a novel. It's a portrait of an artist at a time of creative strife. It is most of all a sad and beautiful comedy from one of the most gifted stylists now at work.
