Sadie Jones recommends
Land of the Living (2018)
"Arresting and brutal the finely tuned work of a writer exceptionally at ease with her craft and a testament to the power and poetry of clean and disciplined prose."
"A hugely entertaining book about the grand scope of friendship and love, it is also, movingly at times, astonishingly a story of transience, loss and true loyalty."
A Single Thread (2019)
"A fierce and moving book about the great courage of a small life."
Life Sentences (2021)
"Billy O'Callaghan's writing is so good and true it feels almost magical; Life Sentences is a beautiful book, a small epic, a joy."
