A Runner Among Falling Leaves Reviews


.. at the heart of the book is a deeply affecting, traumatic relationship between father and son. His writing is terrifying and like no other memoir I have read.

Thomas Kilroy


At a time when we are in danger of losing ourselves in the forever "new" Ireland of today, this brave, honest book should not be missed.

Gerald Dawe, Irish Times
