Squarely in the great Irish tradition of magnificent writing about hardship, rage, longing and fear, this debut novel is set in recession-smitten Ireland about five years ago.  Its 21 chapters are narrated by 21 different characters, each with a unique and piercing voice.  The writing is rhythmic, raw, often comic and always brilliant. The book won a slew of awards in Ireland and the UK, and is just published in the US.
