Reviews

Here is love as a weapon and a balm. Love as faith, fate and redemption ... a gorgeously wrought book - compassionate without dissolving into nostalgia * Guardian *
Endlessly surprising and incredibly moving * David Nicholls *
His moving story of love and loss deserves to win a host of awards. It's an outstanding read * Sunday Express *
I think you have to truly love people to write like this * Rachel Joyce *
A triumph of quiet but devastating power, by some distance the best novel I've read so far this year -- Joseph O'Connor
Tender and beautifully written ... We read this outstanding book in one sitting and will definitely return to it again * Independent *
A big-hearted, beautiful work of art, full of truth and intensity * Kit de Waal *
Classic Ryan; poignant and atmospheric storytelling ... quiet but intermittently explosive * Observer *
I knew Donal Ryan's latest would be good and I was right - it's a risky act of imagination that works, and the sentences are as beautiful as ever -- Sarah Moss * The Times *
With each new novel Donal Ryan's ink seems to sink deeper into the page. In Strange Flowers he gathers together the fragments of broken lives and makes us something new and beautiful from them * Ronan Hession, author of Leonard and Hungry Paul *
