Synopsis : Long Time, No See introduces us to the unforgettable world of Mister Psyche . In the isolated coastal townland of Ballintra in the Northwest of Ireland Recent school-leaver, occasional worker, full-time companion and Malibu-provider to Uncle Joe-Joe and his friend, The Blackbird, Psyche is a boy on the cusp of adulthood, undone by a recent traumatic event. Hanging out with men some forty-plus years his senior proves hazardous for Mister Psyche when the appearance of a bullet-hole in Uncle Joe-Joe's window draws him into a series of (mis)-adventures which unsettle and bemuse. Perhaps The Blackbird is losing it? Or perhaps The General has decided to act on a decades-old grudge? Whichever way, as the paranoia grabs a creeping hold of Uncle Joe-Joe, his fragile world threatens to collapse. And it is Mister Psyche who must digest this and acknowledge the new world taking shape in the old ...An epic in miniature peopled by a cast of innocents and broken misfits, Long Time, No See's lyrical power casts a miraculous literary spell.

Critique: 'Terrific, exhilarating ... every page is a pleasure to read and the entire book is, as one of Healy's characters might put it, an astonishment.' --Sunday Times

'Stately and amusing novel ... a grand read, funny and provocative.' --Annie Proulx, Guardian

'A beguiling novel about a small isolated community in Ireland on the cusp of change ... It's an enchanting old Ireland ... A poet and dramatist as well as a novelist, Healy is one of Ireland's foremost writers' --Herald

'Patrick McCabe meets James Ellroy, except more playful. Healy, in fact, has captured Ireland talking for Ireland ... if you listen, you ll find a lot to love.' -- Irish Times

'Gentle, droll and surreal, Healy's writing [is] captivating.' --Sunday Telegraph

'A beguiling novel about a small isolated community in Ireland on the cusp of change ... It's an enchanting old Ireland ... A poet and dramatist as well as a novelist, Healy is one of Ireland's foremost writers' --Herald

'Is Dermot Healy the last honest Irishman? The astonishing truthfulness of his fourth novel implies that he is. Long Time, No See is a kaleidoscopic work, a beautiful mirror that gives form to the minutiae of Irish life as it continues to be lived in peripheral parts of the country. Many novels have promised to dissect this milieu, yet few succeed in doing so with Healy s great genius for humour, feeling, and language ... Healy s first novel in more than a decade is a critique delivered with true understanding. It is neither sentimental nor nostalgic, more an extraordinary act of ventriloquism ... to open this novel is to enter a layered and meaningful world which has been well worth the wait. Succeeding as an immensely enjoyable reading experience as much as a carefully wrought aesthetic marvel, Long Time, No See is a mesmerising achievement.' --Irish Examiner
