Reviews

"Incredibly moving." -- Gina McKee Daily Express "An early nineties classic... It reminds you of the privilege of freedom" -- Joseph Fiennes Daily Express "There may have been more important books than Brian Keenan's An Evil Cradling, but its thoughtfulness and delicacy of feeling are unforgettable. Four years of savage captivity in Lebanon have been transmuted into understanding, not bitterness: a remarkable achievement" Daily Telegraph "From the horror has come something wonderful. An Evil Cradling is a great book... it has been created from harsh reality, and it has been created by a true writer... With the publication of An Evil Cradling, Brian Keenan is not letting the world forget. This is a mighty achievement by a magnificent writer" -- Frank McGuinness Irish Times "Scriptural in its resonances and its broad artistry, while being as gripping as an airport thriller" Observer
