Berlin, spies and solitary writers – A Lonely Man reviewed in the Sunday Times

Chris Power’s novel begins in a Berlin bookshop

We were thrilled to see Johanna Thomas- Corr rave review of Chris Power’s forthcoming debut novel in the Sunday Times this weekend, where she praised it as: “an elegant, atmospheric story of shadows and half-truths.” She continues:

“Power shares all of the letters of his surname with his protagonist as well as many biographical details: he is also the author of an acclaimed short-story collection (Mothers, 2018) and has a Swedish wife and two daughters. At times his descriptions of dinner parties and school runs recall the domestic autofiction of Karl Ove Knausgaard. But Power is a very different kind of writer — and A Lonely Man soon reveals itself as a taut, subtle, postmodern literary thriller written with an exacting command over its form.”
