Reviews of Good Trouble

    • Praise for Good Trouble:
    • ‘O’Neill’s intelligence and invention puts him ahead of the pack’ Sunday Times
    • Praise for Netherland:
    • ‘A great American novel, but one with an ordinary European Everyman at its centre.’ Sean O’Hagan, Observer
    • ‘An exquisitely written novel, a large fictional achievement, and one of the most remarkable post-colonial books I have ever read’ James Wood, New Yorker
    • ‘An extraordinary novel … O’Neill is a writer of dizzying elegance’ Daniel Swift, Financial Times
    • ‘Touched by greatness’ Ed Caesar, Sunday Times
    • ‘It is hard to know which is stranger – that a great American novel has been written about cricket or that a great cricket novel should be set in America. But both are true. Netherland, a state-of-the-nation exploration of contemporary America, is ambitious, intelligent and deeply perceptive…whether a huge six or a home run – whatever the metaphor of your choice Netherland – comes right out of the middle of the bat’ Ed Smith, The Times
    • Praise for The Dog:
    • ‘On page after page, O’Neill can still dazzle as a compellingly intelligent writer. Everywhere you look, there’s a shimmering portrait of modernity waiting to be glimpsed … [An] ambitious, lucidly thought-through novel’ Guardian
    • ‘Our only truly international writer … Breathtaking … O’Neill’s writing reflects the individual’s concerns in our desolate modern world in prose that is illuminating, amusing, sometimes beautiful, but never showy’ Irish Independent
    • ‘The best comic novel I’ve read for ages’ The Scotsman
    • ‘Enraged, brutal, witty and at times brilliant’ Sunday Times
