Summary

Told from a multitude of perspectives in lyrical, hypnotic prose, Thirteen Ways of Looking is a groundbreaking work of true resonance.

Accompanied by three equally powerful stories set in Afghanistan, Galway and London, this is a tribute to humanity's search for meaning and grace from a writer at the height of his form, capable of imagining immensities even in the smallest corners of our lives.

Critic reviews

"Quite simply one of the best, most sustained pieces of fiction I've read in some time.... A novel of true resonance and power." ( Independent on Transatlantic)
"His vivid, reactive and heartfelt fiction lives and breathes, sighs and weeps." ( Irish Times on Transatlantic)
