display_descriptionLonglisted for the Man Booker Prize, a mesmerizing new novel from the award-winning author of The Secret Scripture. Sebastian Barry's latest novel, Days Without End, is now available.

A first-person narrative of Lilly Bere's life, On Canaan's Side opens as the eighty-five-year-old Irish émigré mourns the loss of her grandson, Bill. Lilly, the daughter of a Dublin policeman, revisits her eventful past, going back to the moment she was forced to flee Ireland at the end of the First World War. She continues her tale in America, where—far from her family—she first tastes the sweetness of love and the bitterness of betrayal.
Spanning nearly seven decades, Sebastian Barry's extraordinary fifth novel explores memory, war, family ties, love, and loss, distilling the complexity and beauty of life into his haunting prose.
