Summary
"One messy murder affects the lives of five misfits who exist on the fringes of Ireland's post-crash society. Biting, moving and darkly funny, The Glorious Heresies explores salvation, shame and the legacy of Ireland's twentieth-century attitudes to sex and family"--
Summary
This darkly humorous, gritty debut has a lot in common with novels by Irvine Welsh -- foul language, colorful slang, and seedy characters, to start. Though it ostensibly follows the consequences of Maureen Phelan's clubbing of an intruder using a holy relic (she asks her gangster son to conceal the (accidental) death that results), it also addresses the violence, crime, and despair of an Ireland whose economic hopes have been dashed. Five years pass within these pages, as characters young and old alike are forced into bad choices. Give it a go if you're up for something dark, literary, and profane. -- Description by Shauna Griffin
