  • Every once in a while, a writer's voice hits such a clear note, the resulting book has the kind of sweetness that makes you hold it in your hands a moment before finding a place for it on your shelves. Circles Around the Sun is this kind of book: it's a keeper. A memoir of a schizophrenic brother, written with great care and simplicity, it is one of those stories that waited until its writer was ready to tell it.

    Anne Enright, Guardian
  • Brilliant, at times heartbreaking ... A remarkably courageous memoir that is as strange and rich as any fiction

  • Searing ... there is a rare, uplifting honesty about this heartbreaking story

    Irish Independent

    Sunday Times
