Night Boat to Tangier by Kevin Barry

It’s late one night at the Spanish port of Algeciras and two fading Irish gangsters are waiting on the boat from Tangier.  A lover has been lost, a daughter has gone missing, their world has come asunder – can it be put together again?

Night Boat to Tangier is a novel drenched in sex and death and narcotics, in sudden violence and old magic.  But above all, it is a book obsessed with the mysteries of love.  A tragicomic masterwork from the award-winning Kevin Barry, Night Boat to Tangier is a work of melancholy beauty, wit and lyrical brilliance.

Peer & Press Reviews

Night Boat to Tangier draws on the terrific vernacular energy in Irish English that is animating the best of Irish writing at present…  This is a remarkably achieved novel which shows a writer in full command of the possibilities of the form.

Irish Times

Kevin Barry is still young, but in this novel he has found a deep and aged maturity; all the recognisable Barry phraseology and wit is still there, but there’s also now a lovely melancholic kindness.  Perhaps even a sentimentality, in the best sense of that word.  Kevin Barry loves you; the least you can do is read this wonder of a novel.

Jon Mcgregor

The novel 2019 has been waiting for – a masterpiece delivered by a glittering talent at the peak of his powers.  It leaves the rest of the class looking somewhat underpowered and unambitious, perhaps even a bit shop-worn…  If Beatlebone was his breakout work, Night Boat to Tangier should cement the Irishman’s place among the literary elite.
