Walking with Ghosts is a courageous examination of the painful and formative experiences of how Byrne became who he is today. With poetic sensibility, he recalls the people, landscapes, and culture that have influenced his life and work. Defiantly original, this is both a candid exploration of the ambivalence of fame and a lyrical often heartbreaking account of boyhood in an Ireland now largely disappeared.

Advance praise for Walking with Ghosts:

“Make no mistake about it: Walking with Ghosts is a masterpiece. A book that will wring out our tired hearts. It is by turns poetic, moving, and very funny.”—Colum McCann
