The eerie, suspenseful debut novel — hailed as “an amazing piece of fiction” by Stephen King — that is taking the world by storm. When the remains of a young child are discovered during a winter storm on a stretch of the bleak Lancashire coastline known as the Loney, a man named Smith is forced to confront the terrifying and mysterious events that occurred forty years earlier when he visited the place as a boy. At that time, his devoutly Catholic mother was determined to find healing for Hanny, his disabled older brother. And so the family, along with members of their parish, embarked on an Easter pilgrimage to an ancient shrine. But not all of the locals were pleased to see visitors in the area. And when the two brothers found their lives entangling with a glamorous couple staying at a nearby house, they became involved in more troubling rites. Smith feels he is the only one to know the truth, and he must bear the burden of his knowledge, no matter what the cost. Proclaimed a “modern classic” by the Sunday Telegraph (UK), The Loney marks the arrival of an important new voice in fiction.

To Hear the Ocean Sigh is a contemporary-realistic, coming-of-age narrative by first-time novelist Bryant A. Loney. Jay Murchison believes he is a nobody at his high school in Oklahoma. Coming from a conservative family of affordable luxury, Jay has an overwhelming desire to become something great. After a mysterious girl named Saphnie in North Carolina mistakenly texts him, an unlikely relationship develops that affects Jay's self-perception and influences the rest of his sophomore year. This correspondence leads him to a group of thrill-seekers who provide a grand departure from the quiet life Jay is familiar with and eye-opening experiences to witness first-hand the truth behind the loose morals his fellow classmates have come to know. In a story filled with injustice, hope, hatred, love, grief, and understanding, readers will ask themselves what it truly means to hear the ocean sigh and learn of the dire consequences that come with its responsibilities.
Literary Nonfiction. Poetry History & Criticism. Typography. Foreword by Jenni Quilter. Of Loney's long-anticipated collection of essays, Johanna Drucker has written: "Few people have mused with such imagination on the topic of the book as Alan Loney does in this volume. His reflections distill a lifetime of practice and reading, of knowing books and living with and around them. His thoughts about libraries, writing, texts, the codex, printed books, the artist's book, fine press traditions, and bibliography are at once philosophical and poetical. Though writing in the tradition of Mallarmé, Jabès and Blanchot, Loney's sensibility is contemporary and original, informed by his practice as a printer and a profound engagement with books as expressive objects and objects of contemplation. I predict that this thoughtful, provocative, book will become a crucial reading on the codex. Loney's writing is wonderfully suggestive, but clear, fresh, and precise. He addresses issues much debated but rarely articulated so well and with such a skillful ability to open up the field for investigation and discussion."
Cuando los restos de un niño son descubiertos durante una tormenta invernal en un tramo de la sombría costa de Lancashire conocido como el Loney, Smith se ve obligado a afrontar los terribles y misteriosos sucesos acaecidos cuarenta años atrás, cuando visitó el lugar siendo un chiquillo. Su devota madre, católica exacerbada, resolvió encontrar una curación para la discapacidad de Hanny, su hermano mayor. Así, la familia —junto con los miembros de su parroquia— peregrina hasta un antiguo santuario. Pero no todos los lugareños se mostrarán felices de recibir a los nuevos visitantes. Cuando ambos hermanos traben contacto con una inquietante pareja que vive en una casa cercana, se verán involucrados en una sucesión de perturbadores ritos. Smith siente que es el único que conoce la verdad, y que debe llevar sobre sus espaldas ese peso, no importa cuál sea el precio. Proclamada un «clásico moderno», traducida a infinidad de lenguas y alabada por autores como Stephen King o Paula Hawkins, The Loney refrenda la aparición de una fresca y relevante voz en la ficción contemporánea. Una lectura inolvidable.
