Kevin Barry: Night Boat to Tangier


Join us in welcoming Irish novelist Kevin Barry with his much anticipated third novel, Night Boat to Tangier.

Drenched in sex, death and narcotics, this novel tells the tale of two faded Irish gangsters as the world falls apart around them. One has lost a lover, the other a daughter.

Obsessed with violence, old magic and the mysteries of love, this tragicomic masterwork is both mordant and hilarious, lyrical yet laden with menace.

Kevin Barry has written two previous novels, Beatlebone, which won the Goldsmiths Prize, and the multi-award-winning City of Bohane. He has also written two short story collections Dark Lies the Island and There are Little Kingdoms, which won the Rooney Prize for Irish Literature.

He co-founded and edits Winter Papers, Ireland’s annual arts anthology.
