THE INSTANT IRISH TIMES BESTSELLER A GUARDIAN BOOK TO LOOK OUT FOR IN 2024 A NEW STATESMAN FICTION HIGLIGHT OF 2024 AN OBSERVER FICTION TO LOOK OUT FOR IN 2024 AN IRISH TIMES FICTION TO LOOK OUT FOR IN 2024 What if we ride out tonight? What if we ride out and never once look back? October, 1891. Butte, Montana. A hard winter approaches across the Rocky Mountains. The city is rich on copper mines and rampant with vice and debauchery among a hard-living crowd of immigrant Irish workers. Here we find Tom Rourke, a young poet and balladmaker, but also a doper, a drinker and a fearsome degenerate. Just as he feels his life is heading nowhere fast, Polly Gillespie arrives in town as the new bride of the devout mine captain Long Anthony Harrington. A thunderbolt love affair takes spark between Tom and Polly and they strike out west on a stolen horse, moving through the badlands of Montana and Idaho. Briefly an idyll of wild romance perfects itself. But a posse of deranged Cornish gunsmen are soon in hot pursuit of the lovers, and closing in fast . . .
