A great read.
Great for readers of Kevin Barry, and Allan Wilson.
Billy Keane could show off. But this novel is perfectly pared and there's a natural rhythm and lilt to the narrative that makes the heart of a reader sing. I couldn't leave it down once I'd started. There's an underscoring of the main story by G's reminiscences about his father that is quietly beautiful and utterly heartbreaking.
Hilarious, heartbreaking, savage, tender, stunning, unputdownable - I love this book, and I can't recommend it highly enough.
Brilliantly written in a forward style (as in not for prudes) and with that Irish wit; trowing a bit of humor even in the darkest moments.
As a French living in Ireland, I hope this book will make it internationally and showcase Irish Contemporary Literature at its best.

I only discovered the narrator is a friend of an abused woman and it was lighthearted but I couldn't get in to it.Published on 13 April 2014 by poppy
This was a weird book and it was not fully realised. It would have benefitted from some serious editing to put the story in shape.Published on 15 Jan. 2014 by Patrick Duffy
Compelling read but not one for people who like fluffy nice things. Violence and dead dogs in it be warned.Published on 30 Dec. 2013 by Samantha Dyson
