The Dog

The Dog

Author: Joseph O'neill Format: Hardback Release Date: 28/04/2013

Longlisted for The Man Booker Prize 2014. The new novel from Joseph O'Neill, his first since the Man Booker longlisted and PEN/Faulkner Award for Fiction-winning 'Netherland'. In 2007, a New York attorney bumps into an old college buddy - and accepts his friend's offer of a job in Dubai, as the overseer of an enormous family fortune. Haunted by the collapse of his relationship and hoping for a fresh start, our strange hero begins to suspect that he has exchanged one inferno for another. A funny and wholly original work of international literature, 'The Dog' is led by a brilliantly entertaining anti-hero. Imprisoned by his endless powers of reasoning, hemmed in by the ethical demands of globalized life, he is fatefully drawn towards the only logical response to our confounding epoch.

The Black Shore

Author: Joseph O'neill Format: Hardback Release Date: 01/06/2000

Michael Malia's The Black Shore is actually the final novel of Irish writer and civil servant Joseph O'Neill. It points to the fact that his previous novels were carefully crafted metaphors for the bitter contempt in which he regarded his fellow countrymen, their culture, values, and religion. Thus, The Black Shore serves the purpose of bringing all O'Neill's works together and casting them in an altogether different light than previous criticism. Illustrated.
