Reviews

Rarely does a writer stop you so fully in your tracks - Sunday Independent on THE MAKER OF SWANSA gloriously unorthodox confection, part Wilkie Collins, part Conan Doyle, with a generous handful of police procedural and a splash of Stella Gibbons's Cold Comfort Farm. Both disquietingly eerie and impossible to read without laughing out loud ... A cracking good read. - GuardianLike George Eliot, Paraic O'Donnell takes the bombastic and the sincere and throws them together for comic contrast; like Dickens, he does it in deliciously dark Victorian style. The House on Vesper Sands is an eerie, raucous novel, packed with pathos and wit. Read it!The prose in O'Donnell's first novel is glorious, combining an ear for deep cadences of language with a phenomenal acuity of vision ... O'Donnell is clearly a major talent - GUARDIAN on THE MAKER OF SWANSTruly bewitching - David Mitchell on THE MAKER OF SWANSA page-turner in the very best sense of the term ... a deeply pleasurable gothic fantasy - Financial Times on THE MAKER OF SWANSLavishly entertaining, strange and captivating - INDEPENDENT on THE MAKER OF SWANSEnthralling ... a literary feast - Stylist on THE MAKER OF SWANS
