- DescriptionLonglisted for the Man Booker Prize, a mesmerizing new vel from the award-winning author of The Secret Scripture.Sebastian Barry's latest vel, Days Without End, is w available. A first-person narrative of Lilly Bere's life, On Canaan's Side opens as the eighty-five-year-old Irish emigre mourns the loss of her grandson, Bill. Lilly, the daughter of a Dublin policeman, revisits her eventful past, going back to the moment she was forced to flee Ireland at the end of the First World War.
