Carlo Gébler
"Steeped in a powerful authenticity. Gébler dissects the rituals, the unwritten codes and daily humiliations of prison life with a clarity of insight that is both memorable and disturbing."
The Vogue (2018)
Eoin McNamee
"McNamee's startling prose perfectly reveals the ley lines of place, seamlessly links past and present and journeys deep into the human heart. The Vogue is a masterful demonstration of his sublime talent."
