RedskyMorningIn “Red Sky in the Morning,” from, first-time author Paul Lynch, is a novel which opens in1832. Coll Coyle, a new father and small farmer, has incurred the wrath of the owner of the land that he works. Events escalate. He goes on the run, pursued by the landowner’s manager, John Faller. Lynch describes Faller as the “incarnation of rational evil.” There can be no emotional engagement with him. He is a clever and deeply logical man. As the book unfolds, we see how he will utilize any circumstance to advance his cause.  Paul Lynch is from the small town of Carndonough on the Inishowen Peninsula in County Donegal, Ireland. A film critic by trade, Paul saw his first novel auctioned in the UK.
