We were lucky enough to have a personal visit from Sebastian Barry who signed in our bookshop in November 2016.
Sebastian Barry has just become the first and only novelist to have won the Costa book of the year for the second time with his magnificent novel, Days Without End.
Long Listed for the Man Booker Prize 2017. Days Without End follows Thomas McNulty who, after signing up for the US army in the 1850s, aged barely seventeen, he and his brother-in-arms, John Cole go on to fight in the Indian wars and ultimately, the Civil War. Having fled terrible hardships they find these days to be vivid and filled with wonder, despite the horrors they both see and are complicit in. Their lives are further enriched and imperilled when a young Indian girl crosses their path, and the possibility of lasting happiness emerges, if only they can survive.
Moving from the plains of the West to Tennessee, Sebastian Barry’s latest work is a masterpiece of atmosphere and language. Both an intensely poignant story of two men and the lives they are dealt and a fresh look at some of the most fateful years in America’s past, Days Without End is a novel never to be forgotten.
