The Green Road 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 *
