Kevin Barry: Night Boat to Tangier Kevin Barry: Night Boat to Tangier

In the dark waiting room of the ferry terminal in the sketchy Spanish port of Algeciras, two aging Irishmen — Maurice Hearne and Charlie Redmond, longtime partners in the lucrative and dangerous enterprise of smuggling drugs — sit at night, none too patiently. It is October 23, 2018, and they are expecting Maurice’s estranged daughter (or is she?), Dilly, to either arrive on a boat coming from Tangier or depart on one heading there. This nocturnal vigil will initiate an extraordinary journey back in time to excavate their shared history of violence, romance, mutual betrayals and serial exiles, rendered with the dark humor and the hardboiled Hibernian lyricism that have made Kevin Barry one of the most striking and admired fiction writers at work today.

Dilly passes through here often, and this much she has learned – the uglier the town, the kinder the people.


Charlie Red had never been on a plane before. It seemed to have raised him a notch higher in self-confidence levels—a notch that he did not need.


One of our great talents, Maurice. As a people.

Which is the what, Charlie?

Is the walking close-in to buildings to keep the rain off ourselves.

We're world-beaters for it, Mr Redmond.
