Night Boat to Tangier

Night Boat to Tangier

Author(s): Kevin Barry

Location(s): Algeciras, Ireland

Genre(s): Fiction

Era(s): Contemporary



The book moves between fiction Berehaven in Ireland and Algeciras.

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 above all, it is a book obsessed with the mysteries of love. A tragicomic masterwork from the award-winning Kevin Barry, Night Boat to Tangier is a work of melancholy beauty, wit and lyrical brilliance.
