A Washington Post Review by Ron Charles of the Book by Donal Ryan Titled “The Queen of Dirt Island”

From a Washington Post review by Ron Charles of the book by Donal Ryan titled “The Queen of Dirt Island”:

The girl at the center of Donal Ryan’s exquisite new novel is born into animosity and grief. Her mother was ostracized for getting pregnant; her father was killed the day she was born. But from that cruel soil grows a life of unbridled joy and affection.
