Description

BEYOND THE SEA by PAUL LYNCH

An unforgettable new novel from the author of Grace, winner of the Kerry Group Irish Novel of the Year

When fishermen Bolivar and Hector set sail from their South American village, they soon find themselves cast adrift in the Pacific Ocean by a sudden storm. As the days pass and no rescue materialises, the two men must come to terms with each other, and with their environment, if they are to survive.

Part gripping survival story, part fearless existential parable, Beyond the Sea is a meditation on what it means to be a man, a friend, a father and a sinner in our fallen world, a powerful and redemptive novel from a master of lyrical prose.

A Oneworld Hardback & Trade paperback in Ireland 29th August 2019 £12.99

PRAISE FOR BEYOND THE SEA

‘A powerful, heart-breaking story of friendship forged in the most extreme conditions. With its echoes of Greek myth, it yields up those small moments of grace that are deeply transformative.
Mary Costello, author of Academy Street
