Days Without End is an intensely poignant masterpiece of atmosphere and beauty set in mid-19th Century America.   It follows two friends who fight in the Indian Wars and the Civil War.

Irish novelist, playwright and poet Sebastian Barry was awarded the Costa Book Award in 2016 and the Walter Scott Prize for Historical Fiction in 2017 for Days Without End.

‘Some novels sing from the first line, with every word carrying the score to a searing climax, and Days Without End is such a book.  It has the majestic inevitability of the best fiction, at once historical but also contemporary in its concerns,’ Observer.

The discussion will be led by Ava Seave, Adjunct Associate Professor at Columbia Journalism School and a member of the board of American Poetry Review.
