"Powerful . . . O'Connor's writing [is] freewheeling and supple, switching between the comic, the candid, and the profane."--James Saynor, "The New York Times Book Review" "O'Connor has a great eye for the absurd in common things, a great ear for the comic in ordinary speech. His writing is terrific."--Roddy Doyle "Stunning . . . A narrative brilliantly blending past and present as O'Connor deftly probes the aftermath of loss and tragedy, interwaeving the harsh facts with dark humor that glints on the edge of pain."--"Publishers Weekly" (starred review) "A game of psychological cat and mouse is at the core of The Salesman . . . [A] gripping story."--"Harper's Bazaar" "Pungent and cruelly evocative language . . . Painfully vivid [and] gripping . . . Mr. O'Connor's dialogue is by turns bristling and bleak, tender and funny, and his characters are free of stereotypes."--"The Wall Street Journal" "A sharp, unsparing reflection on modern Ireland . . . A deft, often angry, and moving portrait of the complexities of loss and vengeance."--"Kirkus Reviews" "Mesmerizing . . . The honesty and bravery of O'Connor's writing make emotions authentic and redemption almost credible."--"The Observer" "[A] superbly written novel."--"Literary Review" "O'Connor's depiction of a relationship disintegrating under the pressure of money and drink is painfully believable."--"The Sunday Times" "While Sweeney's rage towards his daughter's attackers and the climactic cat-and-mouse game that follows make for gripping reading, it is O'Connor's thoroughly real portrayal of a crumbling marriage that makes for the novel's most stirring scenes."--"The Irish Voice"

Reseña del editor:

It's the hottest summer in Dublin's history and Billy Sweeney has more than weather on his mind. His daughter lies in a coma following a mysterious attack and Billy decides to take the law into his own hands.
