"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)
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.See all Product description

I was utterly devastated to read that Dowd died shortly after completing this novel but am confident that she has left behind a stunning piece of fiction that will enthrall readers, both young and old, for years to come.
An excellent story and a gentle way for me to explain some of the things that go on inside Daddys head that fortunately he has no experience of.
I was very sorry to learn this was the last book the author saw published in her (tragicically brief) lifetime.
