I first read this wonderful book several year’s ago and was so moved and impressed I wanted to read it again. I wasn’t disappointed. If anything, I loved it even more. David Wenham’s superb narration really helped. Highly recommended.

John Steinbeck is a masterful story teller and in this short novel he paints a powerful picture of the lives of poor, itinerant farmers in 1930s USA. It’s gripping, compassionate and tragic. Brilliantly narrated too.

A challenging but rewarding read

I was incredibly impressed with this clever, original and insightful novel. With wry, and often biting, humour the unnamed narrator’s observations about everyday life in an unnamed town in Northern Ireland during the Troubles expose the absurdity, perversity, misogyny and tragedy of that world. It’s not an easy read, and definitely not a page-turner, but Brid Brennan’s superb narration makes it accessible and enjoyable.
