Winner of 2016 Costa Book of the Year
"A true leftfield wonder: Sebastian Barry’s Days Without End is a violent, superbly lyrical western offering a sweeping vision of America in the making and the most fascinating line-by-line first person narration I’ve come across in years." Kazuo Ishiguro
After signing up for the US army in the 1850s, barely seventeen, Thomas McNulty and his brother-in-arms, John Cole, fight in the Indian Wars and the Civil War. Having both fled terrible hardships, their days are now vivid and filled with wonder, despite the horrors they both see and are complicit in. But when a young Indian girl crosses their path, Thomas and John must decide on the best way of life for them all in the face of dangerous odds.
