Reviews

"Confirms her as one of the most significant writers of her generation... A master. She has certainly produced a masterly work." Sunday Times "The Green Road is true and rueful, as terribly adult in its clarity as its battered Madigans." -- James Wood New Yorker "Enright is a shape-shifter who gets into the nerve centres of her creations; the power of her prose lies in its absence of ego. The Green Road is a devastating novel about home and how savage a place it can be." -- Frances Wilson New Statesman "This novel should confirm Enright's status as one of our (their?) greatest living novelists. I hope she can be persuaded to do a sequel." -- John Sutherland The Times "[A] brilliant, devastating, radical novel." -- Kate Clanchy Guardian
