The Closed Harbour: A Novel

'“James Hanley’s writing is as succinct as a telegram, nude, yet terrific.” —The New York Times   “[Hanley’s writing is] uncompromising, stark, too truthful to be comfortable.” —Anthony Burgess   “[Hanley was] not British, not American, not South African, not Ebury Street, not Chicago. Just language like a good clean cyclone.” —William Faulkner   “A modernist master.” —Kirkus Reviews   “Words and incidents have been carefully chosen and placed to give an effect of controlled power. The story of the disgraced sea captain trying vainly to reinstate himself and slowly sinking beneath the combined weight of his guilt and his reputation has universal significance.” —The Times (London)   “[Hanley is] a novelist of distinction and originality.” —E. M. Forster   “[Hanley’s] language, intense and compassionate as his world is diseased and vicious, reveals an intense understanding of the cesspool of human nature and the capacity for good and bad, even at once.” —The List (Edinburgh)   “[Hanley was the creator of] some of the most serious and emotionally demanding novels in our language this century.” —The Sunday Correspondent   “Hanley is one of the most able and influential writers in the English language.” —The Boston Globe   “[Hanley] is that rarity of rarities: a genuine original.” —The New York Times Book Review   “[Hanley] is one of the most consistently praised and least-known novelists in the English-speaking world.” —Time  '
