REACTIONS TO THE HEART CROSSWAYS...

James Claffey's brilliant and aptly named debut novel, The Heart Crossways, grabs hold of you from the start. All the despair and desires of this boy's life, of this family's struggles, and atmospheric Dublin, comes fully to life. Sentence after gorgeous sentence, one feels total immersion. Lyrical and lovely, this novel is poetry in motion.
— Deb Henry, author of The Whipping Club

James Claffey is a master of the authentic working-class Irish atmosphere, but his accomplishment goes beyond: his story of the Brogan family is familiar yet fresh, a coming-of-age tale reminiscent of A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man, yet original. Like a symphony, it moves achingly towards its inevitable quiet final chords.
— Andrew Stancek, author of Wingy Unbound and The Mirko Stories
