‘An extraordinary book, illuminating not only the political map of Belfast but also the dark ring-roads of collective memory and the secret blueprints inside our heads.’ Daily Telegraph
Victor Kelly is the resurrection man, a violent and ruthless Protestant killer roaming the streets of Belfast in the 1970s. In this, his brilliant and shocking debut novel, Eoin McNamee announced his arrival as one of the leading chroniclers of Ireland’s fractured past.
‘Achingly exquisite prose as concentrated as poetry, as unfailing an ear for the cadences and quirks of Belfast dialogue as Roddy Doyle has for Dublin and a fatalistic sense of suspense.’ Sunday Times
‘McNamee’s stunningly dreamlike prose conjures up images of marvellous precision and intensity . . . An awesomely impressive debut.’ Time Out
‘Impressively confident . . . as lean and grimly purposeful a book as the demon-driven terrorist it sets out to explore.’ Jonathan Coe
‘One of the most outstanding pieces of Irish fiction to come along in years.’ Irish Times
