A tragicomic masterwork from multi-award-winning writer Kevin Barry which is mordant and hilarious, lyrical yet laden with menace.

Late one night at the Spanish port of Algeciras, two fading Irish gangsters are waiting on the boat from Tangier. A lover has been lost, a daughter has gone missing, their world has come asunder. Can it be put together again? Night Boat to Tangier is a novel drenched in sex, death and narcotics, in sudden violence and old magic, but it is obsessed, above all, with the mysteries of love.
