FROM A LOW AND QUIET SEA

,

What is the thread connecting three men, seemingly unrelated and unknown to each other?

Farouk flees Syria, a war-torn country, as a refugee with his family.

Lampy can’t forget his first love, which has left deep scars.

John is tormented by his past, as he nears the end of his life.

Marked by everything they have loved and lost, they are looking for a homeland, crossing their own – low and quiet – sea.

One of the most important voices in contemporary Irish literature, Donal Ryan has established himself with works that approach contemporary Irish society with authenticity and literary originality. From A Low And Quiet Sea was listed for the 2018 Booker Award and attempts to turn the gaze to the Other, the refugee and his place in society. The three stories, with a penetrating and in parts poetic language, will reach their shocking conclusion in the last part of the work. A novel about loss, hope, love and the invisible connections between each of us and the others.
