An outstanding debut novel set in Dublin from a young Irish novelist that echoes the poignant, comical, and gritty voices of Roddy Doyle, Patrick McCabe, and Irvine Welsh.
Trevor Byrne was born in 1981 and brought up in Clondalkin in south Dublin. He attended Trinity College and the University of Glamorgan, where he is currently a tutor of creative writing. British narrator John Lee has read audiobooks in almost every conceivable genre, from Charles Dickens to Patrick O'Brian, and from the very real life of Napoleon to the entirely imagined lives of sorcerers and swashbucklers. He has won numerous Audie Awards and AudioFile Earphones Awards, and he was named a Golden Voice by AudioFile in 2009. Lee is also an accomplished stage actor and wrote and coproduced the feature films Breathing Hard and Forfeit.
"Often funny, sometimes very frightening, always very human. I loved it." ---Roddy Doyle, author of the Man Booker Prize winner Paddy Clarke Ha Ha Ha
