Ireland, 1950. Nina Hardy wakes in the big house where she grew up. Now aged fifty, she has returned to the fading beauty of her old home, and its unkempt gardens, its views of the wild Irish Sea, and its long-buried memories. With her childhood friend George, she is seeking peace from a turbulent world. But by the end of the day, a brutal crime will have been committed, which will alter their lives forever. As Nina tries to make sense of everything that has happened, a remarkable story unfolds - a story of a childhood, of extraordinary friendships, and of a war. With wonderful characters, full of passion and drama, Shade is an unforgettable novel that will make great holiday reading.

Extraordinary ... an enormously powerful book. I'd stake a bet it'll win him prizes (Daily Telegraph)
He recreates the drained landscape with the vivid care of a Dutch painting, and infuses it with longing ... Powerfully visual (The Observer)
Shade is a beautifully written book, and is constructed perfectly; in short, it is everything that you could want from a novel ... This tale is everything that contemporary writing should be - formal experimentation in a genuine exploration of narrative and self. (Gregor Shepherd)
Romantic ... lyrical ... a novel of atmosphere ... it succeeds powerfully (Sunday Times)
This book is an absorbing read of dream-like intensity. I was left with the sense of having travelled somewhere both strange and recognisable; and teased with the tantalising sense of shades just beyond the edges of my vision. (Waterstone's Books Quarterly, Lesley Glaister)
Extraordinary ... Let us hope that Jordan's screen commitments do not keep him from the page for another 10 years (Independent)
A very impressive piece of work indeed (Sunday Telegraph)
There are cinematic elements to Shade ... Jordan has a vivid sense of place, and languidly evokes the summer days of Nina's childhood in Ireland. (Daily Telegraph)
A deeply atmospheric ghost story (The Bookseller)
Compelling, intriguing, at once a human drama and a fascinating metaphysical mystery (Patrick McCabe)
'Extraordinary', 'romantic', 'moving', 'brilliant' - the paperback of Neil Jordan's stunning novel is a perfect summer read
