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.

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
