The year is 1990, and in his hometown of Dublin, Ireland, Neil Byrne plays rugby, keeps up with the in-crowd at his school, and is just a regular guy. A guy who's gay. It's a secret he keeps from the wider world as he explores the city at night and struggles to figure out how to reveal his real self--and to whom. First published in Ireland in 1993 and compared to The Catcher in the Rye by critics, Tom Lennon's When Love Comes to Town is told with honesty, humor and originality.
