9780099565390: All Is Silence

Manuel Rivas delivers a literary masterpiece about three young friends growing up in a community which is bound by a conspiracy of silence

Fins and Brinco are best friends, and they both adore the wild and beautiful Leda. The three young friends spend their days exploring the dunes and picking through the treasures that the sea washes on to the shores of Galicia. One day, as they are playing in the abandoned school on the edge of the village, they come across treasure of another kind: a huge cache of whisky hidden under a sheet. But before they can exploit their discovery a shot rings out, and a man wearing an impeccable white suit and panama hat enters the room. That day they learn the most important lesson of all, that the mouth is for keeping quiet.

Review:

"An energetic - and energising - writer" ( Sunday Business Post (Ireland))

"[A] haunting, poetic novel" (Michael Kerrigan Guardian)

"One of the finest tours de force published anywhere, in any language" (Eileen Battersby Irish Times)

"In this haunting, wonderfully poetic novel, Rivas gives us eloquent warning that what starts as fearful silence may end up as an incapacity to speak" (Michael Kerrigan Guardian)

"Rivas, ably translated here by Jonathan Dunne, combines a lyric gift, full of rich imagery and a touch of fantasy, with bald, direct prose" ( Independent)
