Let me tell you something about trees. They speak to each other. Just think what they must say. What could a tree have to say to a tree? Lots and lots. I bet they could talk forever. Some of them live for centuries. The things they must see, that happen around them, the things they must hear.

Farouk's country has been torn apart by war.

Lampy's heart has been laid waste by Chloe.

John's past torments him as he nears his end.

The refugee. The dreamer. The penitent. From war-torn Syria to small-town Ireland, three men, scarred by all they have loved and lost, are searching for some version of home. Each is drawn towards a powerful reckoning, one that will bring them together in the most unexpected of ways.

Tender and powerful, From a Low and Quiet Sea is a thugh-provoking novel of loss, redemption and homecoming, from the author of the Man Booker Prize-nominated novel The Spinning Heart.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"I struggle to think of a writer who has been so prolific and consistent in quality as Ryan . . . Brutally honest, moving and often hilarious" * Guardian *
"An engrossing, unpredictable, beautifully crafted novel; Donal Ryan is giving us characters - their angles and their language - that we haven't seen in Irish literature before." -- RODDY DOYLE
"Donal Ryan has not only bounded over a wall into new territory, but built himself a castle there . . . This is a superb novel." -- JOHN BOYNE
"From a Low and Quiet Sea is not only very cleverly constructed, but deeply moving too. I loved it." * Louis de Bernieres *
"Donal Ryan writes characters so well that as a reader you think `I've met that man', or `I know that woman.' But as a writer you simply wonder `how does he do it?' From a Low and Quiet Sea is brutal and beautiful, carefully crafted portraits, deep and real, tied together, fashioned by a true artist. I absolutely loved it." -- KIT DE WAAL
