"Confirms her as one of the most significant writers of her generation.... A master. She has certainly produced a masterly work." * Sunday Times * "The Green Road is true and rueful, as terribly adult in its clarity as its battered Madigans." -- James Wood * New Yorker * "Enright is a shape-shifter who gets into the nerve centres of her creations; the power of her prose lies in its absence of ego. The Green Road is a devastating novel about home and how savage a place it can be." -- Frances Wilson * New Statesman * "This novel should confirm Enright's status as one of our (their?) greatest living novelists. I hope she can be persuaded to do a sequel." -- John Sutherland * The Times * "[A] brilliant, devastating, radical novel." -- Kate Clanchy * Guardian *
