Wolves of Eden

Author Kevin McCarthy, a Boston College alumnus, will read from his latest work, Wolves of Eden (W.W. Norton & Co., 2018), on Apr. 9 at 5:30 p.m. in Higgins Hall, room 310. Wolves of Eden is a historical fiction novel about Irish immigrants serving in the U. S. army in 1866 in the Dakota territory. It was named one of Amazon’s Best Books of 2018. The Irish Times called Wolves of Eden “a compelling tale” and “a brutal, blood-soaked and unsentimental account of the Old West that bears comparison with Cormac McCarthy’s Blood Meridian.” McCarthy is also the author of Peeler, which was selected by the Irish Times as one of its Top Ten Thrillers of 2010 and as a Read of the Year by the Philadelphia Inquirer, and Irregulars, which was shortlisted for the Ireland AM Crime Fiction Book of the year in 2013. McCarthy’s reading is co-sponsored by the Creative Writing Concentration and Irish Studies.
