Review:

Barry is an artist of the highest order. (Claire Kilroy Guardian, Book of the Week)

'Both fascinating and moving, The Temporary Gentleman shows Sebastian Barry to be one of our finest novelists - daring, accommodating and humane.' (John Banville)

Told in Barry's flawless prose, it's a book that leaves the reader bruised long after the final page has been, regretfully, turned. (John Harding Daily Mail)

Engrossing ... memorable ... a notable addition to Barry's ongoing chronicle of lives hitherto untold. (John Boland Irish Independent)

Few contemporary novelists are better equipped to unravel a long and complex life with insight and compassion. (Max Davidson Mail on Sunday)

The story sings with strong-pulsed poetry. (Sheena Joughin Sunday Telegraph)

Arguably our greatest living novelist. (Irish Times)

'These lives are re-imagined in language of surpassing beauty.' (New York Times)

'He writes like an angel.' (James Naughtie Sunday Telegraph)

'Barry's greatness isn't just that he's a fine writer and a deeply political writer. His greatness is he does it all simultaneously: he tells a desolating story and demolishes many myths at the same time. Ireland's lucky to have him.' (Carlo Gebler Financial Times)

Book Description:

The Temporary Gentleman by Sebastian Barry is a stunning return from the prize-winning and best-selling author of The Secret Scripture.
