Review

PRAISE FOR GRACE

"Grace is a story of ghosts but it isn't a ghost story. Grace is a story of the Great Famine, but it's not narrowly political. Grace is a tale of misery, but it's not a misery memoir. Lynch is a sure-footed tightrope walker....his lush, poetic prose deliberately and painfully acts as a foil to the reality of the famine."
Katherine Grant, The New York Times Book Review

"A moving work of lyrical and at times hallucinatory beauty... Grace reads like a hybrid of John Steinbeck's The Grapes of Wrath and Cormac McCarthy's The Road."―John Michaud, The Washington Post

"Passionately lyrical....the familiar world was made new, in the worst way, by the famine; Lynch makes it new again by his prose...Lynch's muscular, vivid voice serves him and his material superbly."―Margot Livesey, The Boston Globe

"An epic tale of endurance, which in Lynch's deft hands is harrowing and simultaneously starkly beautiful."―Angela Ledgerwood, Esquire

"It's not just style that makes this an unforgettable book. Its heroine, 14-year-old Grace, may not have much to say for herself, but her younger brother, Colly, is a gleefully riddling, smutty delight. Separated by a tragedy soon after they are expelled from home to fend for themselves, Colly's irresistible voice continues to ring in Grace's ears.
What ensues is full of incident and grotesques, fizzing with adventure, a counter to the enervating effects of their starvation. But gradually it becomes a darker book as hunger eats away at humanity - and the darker it gets, the more [Lynch's] unerring gifts are confirmed."
The Daily Mail UK

"This is a profound and unusual coming-of-age story."―The Sunday Times UK

"The prose flows like good Irish whiskey and compels readers to keep drinking in Lynch's words; sometimes so poetic they read like a James Joyce novel."―Kathe Robin, RT Book Review

"As a writer, Lynch is sui generis. His style is bold, grandiose, mesmeric. He strives for large effects, wrestles with big ideas. In Melville's formulation, he is one of those writers who dares "to dive" into the darkest recesses of the soul, risking all to surface clutching the pearl."―Bert Wright, The Sunday Times Ireland

"Grace offers an intriguing perspective on the concepts of femininity and hardship, one that feels as though it has already claimed its place among great Irish literature."―Hope Racine, BookPage

"Grace's journey is thrilling enough but Lynch's poetic and cinematic prose endows her with a voice that should make her a classic of Irish literature.... Not just another historical novel, Grace is one of the most memorable and unique books I've read.―Bookbrowse
