9780143035091: A Long Long Way

Told in Sebastian Barry's characteristically beautiful prose, "A Long Long Way" evokes the camaraderie and humour of Willie and his regiment, the Royal Dublin Fusiliers, but also the cruelty and sadness of war, and the divided loyalties that many Irish soldiers felt. Tracing their experiences through the course of the war, the narrative brilliantly explores and dramatises the events of the Easter Rising within Ireland, and how such a seminal political moment came to affect those boys off fighting for the King of England on foreign fields - the paralysing doubts and divisions it caused them.

Review:

'A beautifully written book with human value.' -- Sunday Times

'The story grips, shocks and saddens; but most importantly refuses to be forgotten.' -- The Times

'Unsurpassed in First World War fiction, A Long Long Way is a small masterpiece with an exhilarating resoluteness and authority.' -- Independent

From the Publisher:

Longlisted for The Man Booker Prize 2005
