Το τραγούδι του προφήτη: Ένα χτύπημα στην πόρτα μια βροχερή νύχτα αλλάζει τη ζωή της Άιλις. Δύο αξιωματικοί της νεοσύστατης μυστικής αστυνομίας αναζητούν τον άντρα της. Ποια θα είναι η τύχη τόσο του ίδιου όσο και του πρωτότοκου γιου τους ; Η πατρίδα της, η Ιρλανδία, βρίσκεται στο έλεος μιας δικτατορικής κυβέρνησης. Η πόλη της, το Δουβλίνο, είναι το κέντρο μιας αιματηρής εμφύλιας διαμάχης, κι εκείνη πρέπει να προστατέψει τα παιδιά της και τον ηλικιωμένο πατέρα της. Πόσο μακριά θα φτάσει για να σώσει την οικογένειά της; Και τι –ή ποιον– θα υποχρεωθεί να αφήσει πίσω;

Paul Lynch is the Booker Prize-winning author of five novels: PROPHET SONG, BEYOND THE SEA, GRACE, THE BLACK SNOW and RED SKY IN MORNING.

His debut novel RED SKY IN MORNING was published to critical acclaim on both sides of the Atlantic in 2013. It was a finalist for France’s Prix du Meilleur Livre Étranger (Best Foreign Book Prize) and was nominated for the Prix du Premier Roman (First Novel Prize). In the US, it was an Amazon.com Book of the Month and was featured on NPR’s All Things Considered, where Lynch was hailed as “a lapidary young master”. It was a book of the year in The Irish Times, The Toronto Star, the Irish Independent and the Sunday Business Post.

THE BLACK SNOW (2014) was an Amazon.com Book of the Month. In France it won the French booksellers’ prize Prix Libr’à Nous for Best Foreign Novel and the inaugural Prix des Lecteurs Privat. It was nominated for the Prix Femina and the Prix du Roman Fnac (Fnac Novel Prize). It was hailed as “masterful” by The Sunday Times, “fierce and stunning” by The Toronto Star and featured on NPR’s All Things Considered where Alan Cheuse said that Lynch’s writing was found “somewhere between that of Nobel poet Seamus Heaney and Cormac McCarthy”.

GRACE was published in 2017 to massive international acclaim. The Washington Post called the book, “a moving work of lyrical and at times hallucinatory beauty… that reads like a hybrid of John Steinbeck’s ‘The Grapes of Wrath’ and Cormac McCarthy’s ‘The Road’”. It won the Kerry Group Irish Novel of the Year and was shortlisted for the Walter Scott Prize and the William Saroyan International Prize. In France it was shortlisted for the Prix Jean Monnet for European Literature, among other prizes. It was a book of the year in the Guardian, the Irish Independent, Kirkus and Esquire, a Staff Pick at The Paris Review and an Editors’ Choice in the New York Times Book Review.

BEYOND THE SEA was published in September 2019 to wide critical acclaim in the UK, Ireland, Australia and the US. The Wall Street Journal called the book “mesmerising”; The Guardian called the book “frightening but beautiful”, while The Sunday Times said it had “echoes of Melville, Dostoyevsky and William Golding”. It was chosen as a book of the year in the Irish Independent by Sebastian Barry who called the book “masterly”. In 2021, it was published to wide acclaim in France where it won the 2022 Prix Gens de Mers. 

PROPHET SONG was published to ravishing praise in August 2023 and won the Booker Prize as well as being shortlisted for the An Post Irish Novel of the Year. The Booker Prize jury called the novel “soul-shattering… truly a masterful work”. John Boyne in The Sunday Independent called Prophet Song “entirely original”. The Observer called the book “a crucial book for our current times… brilliant, haunting”. The TLS called it “thunderously powerful”. The Guardian called it “an urgent, important read”. The Literary Review called the book “a masterly novel”. Ron Charles in the Washington Post called the book “a prophetic masterpiece”.
