'Eoghan Smith's A Provincial Death is seriously Irish — and Irishly serious: the ridiculousness of Smyth’s predicament doesn’t stop its being terrifying. For all its formal adventurousness and linguistic playfulness, this is a novel "about" what makes us human.' Andrew Deacon in The Irish Literary Supplement.

Prague 1938 by Dara Kavanagh. 'As well as enjoying the clever structure, I was impressed by how well researched this story turned out to be. Every detail of the world of the characters rings true. And while the historical aspects are interesting, what I especially enjoyed is how the novel is full of echoes of 20th century European culture.'Fionnuala Mc Mmanamon in Books Ireland Magazine
