Hugo Hamilton recommends
Animals (2006)
Keith Ridgway
"Only the strongest writer can carry off this daring examination of emptiness at the heart of our global society. Animals is funny, grotesque, absurdly powerful and unsettling, like walking across a room full of trapdoors."
City of Bohane (2011)
Kevin Barry
"An extreme adventure in pure language and fictional daring."
