    Om Red Sky in Morning

    Spring 1832: Donegal, north west Ireland. Coll Coyle wakes to a blood dawn and a day he does not want to face. The young father stands to lose everything on account of the cruel intentions of his landowner's heedless son. Although reluctant, Coll sets out to confront his trouble. And so begins his fall from the rain-soaked, cloud-swirling Eden, and a pursuit across the wild bog lands of Donegal. Behind him is John Faller - a man who has vowed to hunt Coll to the ends of the earth - in a pursuit that will stretch to an epic voyage across the Atlantic, and to greater tragedy in the new American frontier. Red Sky in Morning is a dark tale of oppression bathed in sparkling, unconstrained imagery. A compassionate and sensitive exploration of the merciless side of man and the indifference of nature, it is both a mesmerizing feat of imagination and a landmark piece of fiction.

    'Paul Lynch has a sensational gift for a sentence, inherited from the likes of Cormac McCarthy, Sebastian Barry and Daniel Woodrell. He is a writer to watch out for, staking a bid for a territory all his own' Colum McCann, author of Let The Great World Spin. 'Paul Lynch's writing is full of dark invention and brutal beauty. A raw and audacious talent which grips Irish writing by the neck' Hugo Hamilton, author of The Speckled People. 'A wonderful achievement. A thrilling plot is expressed in the most beautiful, idiosyncratic style. It is certainly the most promising of new dawns' Sunday Times. 'Classic storytelling, rough and haunted people and the times that made them, powerfully conjured, written in language that demands attention. Lynch is bardic, given to sly and inspired word selections, with his own sprung rhythms and angled, stark musicality' Daniel Woodrell. 'Lynch's book is a beautifully etched and colourfully told drama' Sunday Business Post (Dublin). 'Inspired by a true story and written in lyrical yet accessible prose, this accomplished novel marks Lynch out as a writer to watch' Irish Times. 'A compulsive read ... A combination of the poetic and the vicious. It unabashedly uses a 21st century sensibility to subvert the conventions of the 'historical' novel' Irish Times. 'This book makes the literary synapses spark and burn. Forged in his own new and wonderful language, Paul Lynch reaches to the root, branch and bole of things, and unfurls a signal masterpiece' Sebastian Barry.
