From a prolific Irish author with insight into modern male behavior, a story of childhood that is both funny and sad. It is 1975 in a small town near Dublin. Starsky and Hutch rule the television screen, and, in Northern Ireland, bombs are going off. It is a heady time for a boy whose life is about to change. His father is by day a delivery man for a bakery. Das dream, however, is to be a comedian, a stage performer, a star. Who can predict what will happen to this simple family when fame knocks at the door?
