Product description


'Everything about John the Revelator excited me - i couldn't wait to turn the page and keep going. It was almost like reading for the first time...' -- Roddy Doyle

'Peter Murphy's prose is extraordinarily good and each page is sheer pleasure to read.' -- Irish Independent

'So fresh, so original and brave... it's an absolutely wonderful novel.'
-- Colm Toibin

'With his first novel, Irish journalist Murphy has created that elusive, precious thing, beloved of readers and publishers alike: a real page-turner.' -- The List

`Beautifully written, darkly humorous and totally engrossing. An exciting and impressive new talent.' -- Hot Press

`Directly from the opening paragraph, Peter Murphy's exuberantly candid first novel draws the reader.' -- Irish Times


'So fresh, so original and brave... it's an absolutely wonderful novel.'
