Product description

Review

"As a writer, Dowd appears to be incapable of a jarring phrase or a lazy metaphor. Her sentences sing, each note resonates with an urgent humanity of the sort that cannot be faked" (Guardian)

"The work of an outstanding writer" (The Sunday Times)

"A captivating first love affair, a hilarious red herring and profound truths about politics and family add up to a novel set to win awards in the coming year" (Observer)

"An unflinchingly honest and brave novel" (Irish Independent)

"Only two months in, and I may have already found my favourite book of the year. Siobhan Dowd's Bog Child is an astonishing read and the kind of book that holds you in a trance" (The Bookseller)

Book Description

The extraordinary story of one long summer in the life of an 18-year-old boy caught up in the chaos and conflict of Ireland in the 1980s.
