Beschrijving

The Irish contemporary classic in a beautiful new edition and with an introduction by John Boyne.

Out at the Forty Foot, that great jut of Dublin rock where gentlemen bathe in the scandalous nude, two boys meet day after day. There they make a pact: that Doyler will teach Jim to swim, and in a year, they will swim the bay to the distant beacon of the Muglins rock, to raise the Green and claim it for themselves. As a turbulent year drives inexorably towards the Easter Rising of 1916 and Ireland sets forth on a path to uncertain glory, a tender, secret love story unfolds.

Written with verve and mastery in a modern Irish tradition descended from James Joyce and Flann O’Brien, At Swim, Two Boys is a shimmering novel of unforgettable ambition, intensity and humanity.

‘One of the greatest Irish novels ever written’ David Marcus
‘The music of Jamie O’Neill’s prose creates a new Irish symphony’ Peter Ackroyd
‘Heartachingly beautiful’ Independent on Sunday
‘A vivid picture of human freedom’ Sunday Times

‘Weren’t you never out for an easy dip?’ he asked . . . ‘I don’t mean the baths, I mean with a pal. For a lark like.’
