From Sebastian Barry, a two-time finalist for the Man Booker Prize, comes a powerful and unforgettable novel chronicling a young Irish immigrant’s army years in the Indian wars and the American Civil War.

Thomas McNulty, having fled the Great Famine in Ireland and now barely seventeen years old, signs up for the US Army in the 1850s and with his brother in arms, John Cole, goes to fight in the Indian Wars—against the Sioux and the Yurok—and, ultimately, in the Civil War. Orphans of terrible hardships themselves, they find these days to be vivid and alive, despite the horrors they see and are complicit in.

Moving from the plains of Wyoming to Tennessee, Sebastian Barry’s latest work is a masterpiece of atmosphere and language. An intensely poignant story of two men and the makeshift family they create with a young Sioux girl, Winona, Days without End is a fresh and haunting portrait of the most fateful years in American history and is a novel never to be forgotten.

Quotes & Awards

  • “A violent, superbly lyrical western offering a sweeping vision of America in the making, the most fascinating line-by-line first person narration I’ve come across in years.”

    Kazuo Ishiguro, Booker Prize–winning author

  • “Remarkable…Life-affirming in the truest and best ways.”

    Daily Mail (London)

  • “Not only a story of survival, it is a love story, too, written in a gorgeous style that blends Barry’s characteristic eloquence with the straight-talk of early America .”

    Financial Times (London)

  • “A work of staggering openness…Barry conjures a world in miniature, inward, quiet, sacred; and a world of spaces and borders so distant they can barely be imagined.”

    Guardian (London)

  • “Sebastian Barry is the most humane of writers…beauty is mined to its last redemptive glint. Like McNulty, the voice is humorous, compassionate, true…a great novel.”

    Irish Times

  • “Evocative of Cormac McCarthy and Charles Portis, Days without End is a timeless work of historical fiction.”

    Booklist (starred review)

  • “Lively, richly detailed…A contribution not just to Irish literature in English, but also the literature of the American West.”

    Kirkus Reviews

  • “A beautiful, savage, tender, searing work of art. Sentence after perfect sentence it grips and does not let go.”

    Donal Ryan, author of The Spinning Heart
