The Green Road Synopsis

Shortlisted for the 2015 Costa Novel Award. Longlisted for the 2015 Man Booker Prize. Winner of the Irish Novel of the Year 2015. Hanna, Dan, Constance and Emmet return to the west coast of Ireland for a final family Christmas in the home their mother is about to sell. As the feast turns to near painful comedy, a last, desperate act from Rosaleen - a woman who doesn't quite know how to love her children - forces them to confront the weight of family ties and the road that brought them home.

The Green Road Press Reviews

'Confirms her as one of the most significant writers of her generation... A master. She has certainly produced a masterly work.' Sunday Times

'The Green Road is true and rueful, as terribly adult in its clarity as its battered Madigans.' -- James Wood New Yorker

'Enright is a shape-shifter who gets into the nerve centres of her creations; the power of her prose lies in its absence of ego. The Green Road is a devastating novel about home and how savage a place it can be.' -- Frances Wilson New Statesman

'This novel should confirm Enright's status as one of our (their?) greatest living novelists. I hope she can be persuaded to do a sequel.' -- John Sutherland The Times

'[A] brilliant, devastating, radical novel.' -- Kate Clanchy Guardian
