Thrill of it All by Joseph O'Connor Thrill of it All, Paperback (July 2015)

Luton, Robbie Goulding, an Irish-born teenager, meets the elusive Fran Mulvey, an orphaned Vietnamese refugee. Together they form a band. Joined by cellist Sarah-Therese Sherlock and her twin brother Sean on drums, The Ships in the Night set out to chase fame. But the story of this makeshift family is haunted by ghosts from the past.

Where Have You Been? by Joseph O'Connor Where Have You Been?, Paperback (October 2013)

Ranging from urgently contemporary London and Dublin to New York's Lower East Side in the nineteenth century, from dark comedy to poignancy, from the wryly provocative to the quietly beautiful, this title includes stories that offer a gathering of dreamers and lost souls who contend with the confusions of living.

Reviews

UK Kirkus Review » Like Thomas Hardy's Return of the Native or Emily Bronte's Wuthering Heights, Inishowen is one of those massive, memorable novels in which the location is as important as the characters. The remote Irish peninsula has long been the setting for myth and mystery; early Celtic Christian churches mingle with the arcane - standing stones, megalithic burial grounds and ancient pagan monuments such as the Druidic Temple of the Sun, some 4000 years old. Joseph O'Connor's vibrant and gripping storytelling can only add to its cachet. In this setting O'Connor creates three lives: Ellen was abandoned as a baby and is searching for her real mother; Milton, a worn-out American plastic surgeon is seeking meaning in his life; and finally, the cynical and disenchanted Inspector Martin Aitken, looking for answers when a mysterious woman collapses in a Dublin street. The narrative gradually reveals emotions no-one knew were there and connections no-one suspected. The lives of each of the characters are transfigured by their visit, but it's the place - Inishowen itself - that you'll remember the most acutely. (Kirkus UK)
