  • Press Reviews for Salvage

    Richard Kearney’s new novel, Salvage, will be launched at Boston College on March 16th. Details will be shared soon. In the meantime, this is the way Fanny Howe describes the book:

    Bursting with intimate contact with plants and sea creatures, who seem to grow from the writer’s pen as the origins of life might do, Salvage is a story about love, faith and the future. In this gem of a book, rooted in ideas Richard Kearney has been developing for decades, the writing is healing. It heralds the recovery of a rich Irish wisdom, something the world needs now more than ever.
