Product description

Two old friends are waiting at a Spanish port hoping to find a loved one among those travelling to and from Tangier. As the men discuss their lives, with all their trials and tribulations, we see how their dangerous past has impacted them and their families to a devastating extent. Kevin Barry is a wonderfully gifted writer whose unique prose casts a hypnotic spell over the reader. This tragicomic novel, which has a touch of Waiting for Godot about it, is sure to also become an Irish classic.

- Mairead Gallagher, Dubray Grafton Street

It's late one night at the Spanish port of Algeciras and two fading Irish gangsters are waiting on the boat from Tangier. A lover has been lost, a daughter has gone missing, their world has come asunder - can it be put together again?

Night Boat to Tangier is a novel drenched in sex and death and narcotics, in sudden violence and old magic, but it is obsessed, above all, with the mysteries of love. A tragicomic masterwork from a multi-award-winning writer, Night Boat to Tangier is both mordant and hilarious, lyrical yet laden with menace.
