About Book

Please note: This is a Faber Members event and not a book product.

Tickets are paperless and your name, plus the number of tickets you have bought, will be put on a guest list and held on the venue door.

Join us for an evening with the bestselling author Sebastian Barry, as he discusses his latest novel, Days Without End, winner of the Costa Book of the Year 2016.

Days Without End tells the story of Thomas McNulty, who having fled the Great Famine in Ireland joins the US Army in the 1850s. With his companion John Cole, Thomas fights in both the Indian and Civil Wars. Hauntingly brutal and atmospheric, theirs is a story of love and war.

‘It is brutal, it is terrifying, it moves you to tears, it horrifies – and at the same time, it has these fantastic moments of light and beauty, and of friendship. It takes you from the highs to the lows of human experience. It is an absolutely magnificent, incredible book.’ - Costa Book of the Year, chair of judges, Kate Williams

’Nobody writes like, nobody takes lyrical risks like, nobody pushes the language, and the heart, and the two together, quite like Sebastian Barry does …’ - Ali Smith

‘A violent, superbly lyrical western offering a sweeping vision of America in the making.’ - Kazuo Ishiguro

'A work of staggering openness; its startlingly beautiful sentences … so capacious that they are hard to leave behind, its narrative so propulsive that you must move on.' - Guardian

Time: 7pm

Date: Wednesday, 29th March 2017
