Graceful, confident, vivid... I loved this beautifully written novel * Joseph O'Connor, on Nine Folds Make a Paper Swan * A rich and layered story of the complications, the mistakes and the heartbreaks of which a human life is made... I haven't read anything like it * Belinda McKeon, on Nine Folds Make a Paper Swan * Reminiscent of Tea Obreht, Nicole Krauss and Maggie O'Farrell... Wonderful * Colum McCann, on Nine Folds Make a Paper Swan * Rich in plot and full of characters that have been neglected by Irish literature * Guardian, on Nine Folds Make a Paper Swan * Immensely readable and written with great flair * Irish Independent, on Nine Folds Make a Paper Swan * Flawlessly, intricately plotted, but with such a compelling central mystery that I binged it like a Netflix show... The Butchers is deeply humane and astute on why we might take even the worst options available to us, at times deeply poignant and genuinely moving. It's stunning * Luke Kennard, author of The Transition *

So much is packed into these pages about family, about greed, about love, and about desperation. Oh and it has the perfect ending. * Rowan Hisayo Buchanan, author of Harmless Like You and Starling Days * Flawlessly, intricately plotted, but with such a compelling central mystery that I binged it like a Netflix show... The Butchers is deeply humane and astute on why we might take even the worst options available to us, at times deeply poignant and genuinely moving.
