Some day there will be a university course explaining the appeal of Ross O'Carroll-Kelly... Rarely has a character so despicable, so selfish, so self-obsessed and so utterly thick been so loved (Sunday Independent)

About the Author
Paul Howard grew up in the 1980s in South Dublin, an area bitterly divided between the haves and the have-yachts. He has been ghost-writing Ross O'Carroll-Kelly's adventures since 1998 and, despite the vast chasm between them in terms of looks, money and pulling power, a kind of friendship has formed. The first time he ever called to the O'Carroll-Kelly home, Ross's mother, Fionnuala told him just to clean the downstairs ones today - and this time do a darned sight better job of getting the bird shit off the one in the vestibule.

I have enjoyed all the previous Ross books, but this "like totally official biography" originally struck me as possibly a cheap money-spinner. I was given it as a Christmas gift and found it totally engrossing, finishing it in two days. It's funny, and the back-stories of Ross' parents are great: Charles' story provides considerable insight into the growth of the Celtic Tiger economy, and the inevitability of its eventual implosion, and Fionnuala's background and development is also convincing. It's another great addition to the Ross catalogue.
