Tapes of the River Delta Paperback – 7 October 2011
"It is difficult to know what to admire most in this gifted and original novel. It is a subtle and perceptive study of the pains of adolescence, an eloquent meditation on recent Irish history, a powerful story of betrayal and corrupted political practice and lost dreams." --Barry Unsworth, winner of the Booker Prize"A highly exhilarating and engrossing work of fiction...truly wondrous." --"Irish Times" "A marvelously lyrical, powerfully erotic story...Cunningham paints a dark and compelling canvas that writhes with incest, betrayal, spiritual and political bankruptcy?and the blasted hopes of twentieth century Ireland" "--Publishers Weekly"
