Beyond the Sea Summary

Beyond the Sea by Paul Lynch

When fishermen Bolivar and Hector set sail from their South American village, they soon find themselves cast adrift in the Pacific Ocean by a sudden storm. As the days pass and no rescue materialises, the two men must come to terms with each other, and with their environment, if they are to survive.

Part gripping survival story, part fearless existential parable, Beyond the Sea is a meditation on what it means to be a man, a friend, a father and a sinner in our fallen world, a powerful and redemptive novel from a master of lyrical prose.

Beyond the Sea Reviews

`A powerful, heart-breaking story of friendship forged in the most extreme conditions. With its echoes of Greek myth, it yields up those small moments of grace that are deeply transformative.' * Mary Costello, author of Academy Street *
`Combining the sensibilities of a Joseph Conrad or a Cormac McCarthy with the poetic intensity of an Emily Dickinson, this rich, raw, and powerful seascape by Paul Lynch throws the sea's storms and the sea's light into the darkest corners of human consciousness. An astonishing achievement.' * Jane Urquhart, author of The Night Stages *
Praise for Grace: `A profound and unusual coming-of-age story.' Sunday Times `A shudderingly well written, dead-real, hallucinatory trip across Famine Ireland.' Emma Donoghue, author of Room 'Lynch's book is a celebration of the human spirit in even the most trying of circumstances and the steps we take to ensure our survival.' Irish Independent
