Beatlebone by Kevin Barry

He will spend three days alone on his island.  That is all that he asks…  John is so many miles from love now and home.  This is the story of his strangest trip.

John owns a tiny island off the west coast of Ireland.  Maybe it is there that he can at last outrun the shadows of his past.

The tale of a wild journey into the world and a wild journey within, Beatlebone is a mystery box of a novel.  It’s a portrait of an artist at a time of creative strife.  It is most of all a sad and beautiful comedy from one of the most gifted stylists now at work.

Beatlebone won the 2015 Goldsmiths Prize

Peer & Press Reviews

Beatlebone is a rule-breaking novel, a strange and fascinating look at the mystery of creative inspiration.

Financial Times

Beatlebone is as gloriously confounding and as wondrously welcome as a hatching hawk’s egg in a Christmas cracker.

Niall Griffiths, author of A Great Big Shining Star

Casually lyrical, formally inventive, funny and moving, it is a small wonder.

Sunday Times
