Ausgezeichnet: Bord Gáis Energy Irish Book Awards - Book of the Year 2012, , Ausgezeichnet: Bord Gáis Energy Irish Book Awards - Newcomer of the Year 2012, Ausgezeichnet: Guardian First Book Award 2013

In the aftermath of Ireland's financial collapse, dangerous tensions surface in an Irish town. As violence flares, the characters face a battle between public persona and inner desires. Through a chorus of unique voices, each struggling to tell their own kind of truth, a single authentic tale unfolds. This book speaks for contemporary Ireland.

Zitat
"[An] extraordinarily accomplished first novel. here is a new Irish writer of the very first order. Donal Ryan is the real deal. . a brilliantly realised, utterly resonant state-of-the-nation landscape . Ryan's feat is considerable. Narrative and character information is distributed among so many different voices and yet we never feel at a loss. Even the characters on the margins of the story . add compelling colour and texture. Best of all, Ryan's ear for speech is acute. . Given a novel as brilliantly realised as The Spinning Heart, I see no reason to look anywhere but the present. For Donal Ryan, the future is now." -- Declan Hughes Sunday Independent "Donal Ryan's precise and evocative debut . is a textured account of a community as it was during a brief moment of time. . unexpectedly tender . Ryan's prism of life and lives is compellingly humane. . This is an exciting, relevant and believable contemporary novel about the lost and the wounded that listens to the present without discarding either the sins of the fathers or the literary legacy of the past." -- Eileen Battersby The Irish Times "Powerful and affecting ... [a] superb, unforgettable and topical debut." The Times "Humane, funny, moving and relevant, this is extremely impressive stuff." Daily Mail "A formidable debut, with snatches of the savage comedy of Patrick McCabe and a wistful cadence all its own." Daily Telegraph
