By far the most memorable novel of the year for me was Gerard Beirne’s wonderful The Eskimo in the Net …Wonderful clear prose and sensitive observation in a tough environment make this an outstanding debut work, scandalously ignored by this year’s Man Booker judges.” – Graham Ball (Literary Editor,  Daily Express).







New novel, Charlie Tallulah,

forthcoming from Oberon Press







“The language is sharp and precise….patterning his text with luminous phrases that reach out of their context toward some larger and more mysterious meaning.” – Douglas Glover, Numero Cinq
