Irish Book Awards

A History of Loneliness

The Eason Novel of the Year – Shortlisted

Strangely, this is John Boyne’s first novel about Ireland and it’s well worth the wait. It’s a story about blind dogma and moral courage, and about the dark places where the two can meet. At once courageous and intensely personal, the novel confirms Boyne as one of the most searching chroniclers of his generation.
