The second novel from the IMPAC-winning and Costa-shortlisted Kevin Barry.

Beatlebone is a wild quest tale, following John Lennon's trip to Ireland in 1978. Fleeing the demands of public life, and a third request to appear on The Muppet Show, Lennon heads to the west coast of Ireland in search of answers to life's most pressing questions. Lennon becomes a modern Don Quixote in this bold, lyrical, mordant, funny and incredibly rewarding novel.
