Brooks Book of the Month - June 2017

Each month at Brooks Hotel We choose a 'Book of the Month' for our guests to read at their leisure during their time in Brooks. This month we have selected 'Nothing on Earth' by Conor O'Callaghan
 

Nothing on Earth is simple and direct; complex and sophisticated. The language is deliberately plain. The vocabulary is strictly disciplined. O’Callaghan, a published poet, is unafraid of repetition and is aware of how effective it can be. The tone is deadpan with flashes of humour such as the description of a stilted dinner party and the mindless sunbathing. Above all Nothing on Earth glories in the elusive quality evident in the best fiction, it is utterly ambivalent. In an atmosphere of heat haze, everything that was previously unravelled further falls asunder - Irish Times.

'I greatly admired Conor O'Callaghan's Nothing on Earth, as fine as it is frightening' - John Banville
