Sebastian Barry recommendations
6

CaptainNelson · 08/04/2020 15:21

I've just read a review about Sebastian Barry's latest book in his Dunne/NcNulty novel 'series', and thought it sounded really interesting. But I feel I should start earlier in the set (though I know they're not a coherent set in that sense). Any suggestions/recommendations?
TIA

The Secret Scripture & an ordinary gentleman are both about the McNulty family. The whereabouts of Eneas McNulty is also about one of the brothers. I really enjoyed these. I have to say I couldn't get into Days without End which really disappointed me because I love his writing style. Particularly enjoyed An Ordinary Gentleman.

I have not read the Dunne/McNulty series but have read Days without End and the recently published A Thousand Moons. You definitely benefit from reading those in order.

A great play written by Barry is One Blueberry Hill'. It was on at the theatre in London recently. It is so well written and only about 60 pages. I have been recommending it to everyone.

I haven't read his latest but would SO recommend Days without End which (I think) was the first book featuring Dunne McNulty characters. It is one of my favourite books ever.
