Product Synopsis

One of the most vivid and realised characters of recent fiction, Willie Dunne is the innocent hero of Sebastian Barry's highly acclaimed novel. Leaving Dublin to fight for the Allied cause as a member of the Royal Dublin Fusiliers, he finds himself caught between the war playing out on foreign fields and that festering at home, waiting to erupt with the Easter Rising. Profoundly moving, intimate and epic, "A Long Long Way" charts and evokes a terrible coming of age, one too often written out of history.

Author Choice

For one long week, I travelled in a dark cloud, so moved was I by this book. This is the story of pint-sized Willie Dunne, a young Irishman who joins the Royal Dublin Fusiliers and goes off to fight in World War One. Caught in that great ash-heap of history, he also finds himself caught in the crossfire of the Easter Rising at home. Barry recreates a forgotten corner of Irish history, and along the way, crafts one of the great Great War novels. This is a lament for those caught in that “heaving swell of history”. Barry’s writing luminesces with the most intense beauty, but it is all the more remarkable because his writing does not flinch from the cruelty of the world. The book’s poetry is as harrowingly beautiful as any of the poetry from the Great War.
