A Thousand Moons

Sebastian Barry


Laureate for Irish Fiction and twice winner of The Walter Scott Prize for Historical Fiction

Even when you come out of bloodshed and disaster in the end you have got to learn to live…

In A Thousand Moons we hear the story of Winona, the young Lakota orphan adopted by soldiers Thomas McNulty and John Cole in Days Without End, as she makes her way through the forbidding and treacherous world of post-Civil War America.

Conjuring time and place as only he knows how, Sebastian Barry continues his extraordinary fictional exploration of late nineteenth century America in this novel of bruising love and coming of age in the American South.

‘This is a subtle, troubling novel, full of silences, full of pain.’ – The Financial Times
