  5. Longlisted for the Booker Prize 2019There is an alchemy about this book, which makes such poetry out of the lives of a pair of brutal unscrupulous drug dealing gangsters and eventually left me feeling sympathy for them In the first chapter we meet Maurice and Charlie, two Irishmen in their early fifties, who are waiting in the port at Algeciras where they have been told that Maurice s daughter Dill will be catching a ferry to Tangier They have not heard from her for several years, and the way Longlisted for the Booker Prize 2019There is an alchemy about this book, which makes such poetry out of the lives of a pair of brutal unscrupulous drug dealing gangsters and eventually left me feeling sympathy for them In the first chapter we meet Maurice and Charlie, two Irishmen in their early fifties, who are waiting in the port at Algeciras where they have been told that Maurice s daughter Dill will be catching a ferry to Tangier They have not heard from her for several years, and the way they accost strangers who they believe have information establishes their characters and starts the process of revealing the back story It took me a while to find any interest beyond the undoubted power of the language, but the way Barry gradually introduces the context is very effective and towards the end the book is quite gripping The chapters set on this one night in Algeciras are alternat...

  7. Kevin Barry is a new author for me and so I did not know what to expect going into this book For some reason a had the idea of an exotic crime caper but this is a rather charming character study of two ageing criminals As with all novels that are lyrical in style, some parts failed to hold my interest, however whenever this novel dips towards boring it has the good graces to be beautifully boring I like to think if the Booker panel were to award a prize for best chapter hard to do becaus Kevin Barry is a new author for me and so I did not know what to expect going into this book For some reason a had the idea of an exotic crime caper but this is a rather charming character study of two ageing criminals As with all novels that are lyrica...
