Quotes & Awards

  • “When the history of Ireland is written—the story of the ordinary and the extraordinary combined—the readers will thank the heavens for what the McCourt family have brought us. A Long Stone’s Throw is humble, humorous, and honest. Alphie McCourt moves fluidly through time and geography, to bring us a brand new story, one that is necessary and real, one filled with tenderness and redemption.”

    Colum McCann, National Book Award–winning author of Let the Great World Spin, on A Long Stone’s Throw

  • “McCourt always finds irony in life, and his tales of the bar and restaurant business and its clientele are laugh-out-loud funny. Sensitive, lyrical, funny, stubborn, impetuous, McCourt writes with a steady hand, a joyful heart, and Irishman’s sense of life’s absurdities.”

    Publishers Weekly on A Long Stone’s Throw
