Overview

BY THE AUTHOR OF THE BOOKER PRIZE LONGLISTED PROPHET SONG. 'Paul Lynch is peerless' Donal Ryan, author of Strange Flowers Spring 1832: Donegal, north west Ireland. Coll Coyle wakes to a blood dawn and a day he does not want to face. The young father stands to lose everything on account of the cruel intentions of his landowner's heedless son. Although reluctant, Coll sets out to confront his trouble. And so begins his fall from the rainsoaked, cloud-swirling Eden, and a pursuit across the wild bog lands of Donegal. Behind him is John Faller - a man who has vowed to hunt Coll to the ends of the earth - in a pursuit that will stretch to an epic voyage across the Atlantic, and to greater tragedy in the new American frontier. Red Sky in Morning is a dark tale of oppression bathed in sparkling, unconstrained imagery. A compassionate and sensitive exploration of the merciless side of man and the indifference of nature, it is both a mesmerizing feat of imagination and a landmark piece of fiction.

'This book makes the literary synapses spark and burn ... A signal masterpiece' Sebastian Barry. '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. 'Lynch's startling, evocative prose veers closer to poetry ... This novel is a wonderful achievement' Sunday Times. '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. 'Lynch's book is a beautifully etched and colourfully told drama' Sunday Business Post (Dublin). '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. '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.
