Eoin McNamee recommends

White City (2021)
Kevin Power
"White City is brilliant on the high-octane vacuity of Ireland’s rentier class. Power’s trademark shimmering prose counterpoints a driving narrative... Brilliant."
thumb
Milkman (2018)
Anna Burns
"Mercurial. Profound. Hilarious. Brilliant. I've been waiting for a book like this for thirty years."
thumb
Carnivalesque (2017)
Neil Jordan
"Jordan has a light touch and a clear eye on matters of the heart."
thumb
Opium (2004)
Salar Abdoh
"Critics pronounced the spy novel dead after the fall of the Berlin Wall. Salar Abdoh shows that it is alive and well, and living in Manhattan."
