Description

A cross between Samuel Beckett and Aesop’s Fables, it’s a darkly funny, deceptively simple and deeply layered novel.

It has been described by Declan Kiberd - author of numerous books, including Inventing Ireland, and leading international authority on modern Irish literature – as “A genre-busting masterpiece, full of pacy storytelling, wry dialogue and philosophical challenge…It is funny, beautifully modulated and heart-rending. Róisín Sorahan has written that rare thing nowadays - a book of passion and truth which will enthral and challenge every kind of reader. In contemplating some of life's deepest mysteries, it tells a story that is hopeful, honest and necessary.”

Luke Gerwe - Associate Editor, PBS NewsHour, and formerly Managing Editor, Voice of Witness book series - said, “Time and the Tree is unlike anything I’ve read in contemporary literature – a beautiful fable fit for difficult and confusing days. This story is about teaching yourself to endure, what you might want to carry with you and what you probably should leave behind.”
