Publisher Description

Carry Me Down won the Hawthornden Prize and was shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize.


John Egan lives with his mother, father and grandmother in rural Ireland. This twelve year-old boy believes he has a unique talent and dreams of becoming a world-famous lie-detector-at almost any cost to himself and his family.


Carry Me Down is written in clean, compelling prose, and is about John's obsessive and dangerous desire to see the truth. 


In this singular tale of disturbed love every word rings true. It's a psychological thriller that confirms M.J. Hyland's prodigious writing talents.
