'Lynch has a sensational gift ... inherited from the likes of Cormac McCarthy, Sebastian Barry and Daniel Woodrell. He is a writer to watch out for, staking a bid for a territory all his own' Colum McCann.
'Classic storytelling, rough and haunted people and the times that made them, powerfully conjured, written in language that demands attention. Lynch is bardic, given to sly and inspired word selections, with his own sprung rhythms and angled, stark musicality' Daniel Woodrell.
'A compulsive read ... will attract attention for its singular language - a combination of the poetic and the vicious - as well as for its shocking subject matter' Irish Times.
'A compulsive read ... A combination of the poetic and the vicious. It unabashedly uses a 21st century sensibility to subvert the conventions of the 'historical' novel' Irish Times.
'This book makes the literary synapses spark and burn ... A signal masterpiece' Sebastian Barry.
'Lynch's startling, evocative prose veers closer to poetry ... This novel is a wonderful achievement' Sunday Times.
'Lynch's book is a beautifully etched and colourfully told drama' Sunday Business Post (Dublin).
