Synopsis

In the aftermath of Ireland's financial collapse, dangerous tensions surface in an Irish town. As violence flares, the characters face a battle between public persona and inner desires. Through a chorus of unique voices, each struggling to tell their own kind of truth, a single authentic tale unfolds. 'The Spinning Heart' speaks for contemporary Ireland like no other novel. Wry, vulnerable, all-too human, it captures the language and spirit of rural Ireland and with uncanny perception articulates the words and thoughts of a generation.

    Recession twist

    5 stars


    Posted on

    I picked this up to make up the numbers in one of our Eason 3 for 2 promotions – it was a reluctant purchase because I have purposely avoided any book that references the recession. Told over 21 chapters, one per each character in the book, all of whom are intertwined following the collapse of a local building firm. Their savior is former foreman and golden boy Bobby but he has his own demons to contend with and a problem far greater than any of theirs.

    What the critics say

    "Funny, moving and beautifully written" Edna O'Brien "It's furious, it's moving, it's darkly funny, it punches you right in the gut, the writing is effortlessly wonderful, and every one of the wide variety of voices rings utterly true." New York Times - Tana French "[An] extraordinarily accomplished first novel. here is a new Irish writer of the very first order. Donal Ryan is the real deal. . a brilliantly realised, utterly resonant state-of-the-nation landscape . Ryan's feat is considerable. Narrative and character information is distributed among so many different voices and yet we never feel at a loss. Even the characters on the margins of the story . add compelling colour and texture. Best of all, Ryan's ear for speech is acute. . Given a novel as brilliantly realised as The Spinning Heart , I see no reason to look anywhere but the present. For Donal Ryan, the future is now." Sunday Independent - Declan Hughes "Donal Ryan's precise and evocative debut . is a textured account of a community as it was during a brief moment of time. . unexpectedly tender . Ryan's prism of life and lives is compellingly humane. . This is an exciting, relevant and believable contemporary novel about the lost and the wounded that listens to the present without discarding either the sins of the fathers or the literary legacy of the past." The Irish Times - Eileen Battersby "There's a powerful sense of place and shared history binding Ryan's many voices, their inner and outer selves, distilling a linguistic richness comparable to Under Milk Wood . . . . Ryan's novel . . . seems to draw speech out of the deepest silences; the testimony of his characters rings rich and true - funny and poignant and banal and extraordinary - and we can't help but listen." The Guardian
