Agridirect interviewed me in a piece called “Can we save the Irish family farm? We talk to author Ryan Dennis.” Check it out here!
“Replete with symbolism and imagery, this is a demanding debut, dense and dark, but ultimately rewarding in its strange beauty.”
“A beautifully-wrought, lyrical voice.”
“This is a book that should be savoured, with stunning lines every other page that will ring long after you’ve put it down.”
“I enjoyed the vivid imagery Dennis used as it sent chills down my spine.”
“The Beasts They Turned Away is a powerful book.”
” This is not a pulpy, easy read but rewarding, complex and engrossing.”
“The tale is in many ways tenebrous and sorrowful, reminiscent of eulogy. Remarkable and beguiling, it proved a rewarding read.”
“The Beasts They Turned Away is a book that is unlike any I have read in recent memory.”
