Aprašymas

Boulevard Wren and Other Stories is the stunning follow-up to the bestselling Gospel According to Blindboy, and a warped mirror held up to the Irish psyche.

Provocative and unsettling, the stories rove through the centuries, from the barren fields of Famine-struck Meath to the chaotic landscape of the near future, where social media has colonized the deepest recesses of the human subconscious. This is a world populated by characters lost and at odds with the demands of contemporary life, for whom the line separating redemption and madness has grown impossibly fine.

Razor-sharp social commentary, it is an era-defining work from one of Ireland's most anarchic satirists.


Praise for The Gospel According to Blindboy :

'Mad, wild, hysterical.' Kevin Barry, author of Night Boat to Tangier

'There is genius in this book, warped genius. Like you'd expect from a man who for his day job wears a plastic bag on his head but something beyond that too. Oddly in keeping with the tradition of great Irish writers.' Russell Brand

'If you've ever witnessed a Rubberbandits video you'll be anxious (there's no other word for it) to read this collection of short stories from one of the originators. I hesitate to use the word author as the experience is as close to reading a traditional short story as being burnt by a blow torch. Essential, funny and disturbing.' Danny Boyle

'Demented, dishevelled and deeply surreal - Blindboy Boatclub's book will shock and delight.' Irish independent

'It's not for the faint-hearted.' Joe.ie

'You won't be disappointed. It will take you to places unexpected.' Ryan Tubridy
