MEDIA REVIEWS
"Ireland finds no heroes in his debut novel, which blends fanciful history with magic realism to create a critical allegory of the American expansionist experience.... Intellectual in theme, literary in execution: think Gabriel Garcia Marquez reimagining "Little Big Man.""
-- Kirkus Reviews

"Ryan Ireland has given readers a mysterious and exciting Western that may become a classic."
-- Ron Hansen, author of "The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford"

"Ireland's intensely and brutally violent debut novel sweeps through period and place while exploring the role memory plays in the establishment of creation myths."
-- Library Journal

""Beyond the Horizon" is an unflinching, soul-searching story about the dangers of the American West. Through the use of lyrical and mythic prose, Ireland explores the darkest regions of desire, ambition, and survival. Ireland's voice stands apart and he will surely be marked as a courageous and essential writer."
-- Ann Weisgarber, author of "The Personal History of Rachel DuPree"


Expertly plotted, artfully executed, compulsively readable, Ryan Ireland s Beyond the Horizon offers more evidence that young writers are doing some of their most compelling work in the one-time ghetto of genre fiction, and it marks the debut of a writer with a command of the form, a writer who has something to say. Attempting to engage the mythology of the West as well as of the western itself, Ireland aims high, and thanks to no small amount of vision, talent, and audacity, his novel succeeds on nearly every level. A page-turner and an adventure story as well as the obligatory deconstruction of the genre the novel evolves into a fantastical history of the American West.
Tom Andes in The Los Angeles Review of Books

"Blending narratives and playing with concepts of time, Ireland tells a brutal, twisted tale of an imagined, metaphorical American West that will remind readers of Blood Meridian author Cormac McCarthy.
