Harry Hartog's review

THIS BLEW MY FREAKIN’ SOCKS OFF. Gosh, where to start. The suspense? Creeping up beside you while a knot in your stomach forms. The narrator? A woman, written by a man, who is flawed, compassionate & wholly human. Or the writing itself which is SUPERB. Obviously it won the Booker for a reason, but not since Galgut’s ‘The Promise’ has a book been so deserving. I loved it and it is a key read for the world as it stands today. Recommend to people who like heavy literature, not A Little Life heavy, but Irish-the-world-is-sick-it-can’t-happen-here heavy. - Lauren, Subscriptions

Publisher's description

On a dark, wet evening in Dublin, scientist and mother-of-four Eilish Stack answers her front door to find the GNSB on her doorstep. Two officers from Ireland's newly formed secret police want to speak with her husband, Larry, a trade unionist for the Teachers' Union of Ireland. Things are falling apart. Ireland is in the grip of a government that is taking a turn towards tyranny. And as the blood-dimmed tide is loosed, Eilish finds herself caught within the nightmare logic of a collapsing society - assailed by unpredictable forces beyond her control and forced to do whatever it takes to keep her family together.

Exhilarating, terrifying, propulsive and confrontational, Prophet Song is a work of breathtaking originality and devastating insight, a novel that can be read as a parable of the present, the future and the past.
