Jean-Paul Finnegan stands on board the Ulysses ferry heading home to Ireland. 'Not one person in Ireland has even read Joyce!' he rants, terrifying the passengers around him. A young man in the grip of a dark depression roams the vast, formless landscape of a Dublin industrial park where he meets a strange vagrant in the grip of a dangerous ideology. A woman fleeing the break-up of a long term relationship finds herself taking part in an unusual sleep experiment. A man obsessed with Nietzsche clings desperately to his girlfriend's red shoes.
Amongst these masterful stories lurk characters that straddle the boundary between fiction and non-fiction. What did happen to Killian Turner, Ireland's vanished literary outlaw? Or the Glaswegian novelist Malcolm Donnelly? And just who is Rob Doyle?
Exploring notions of masculinity, failed idealism, sex and the writing life - and moving from Paris to Barcelona, Dublin and London - these inventive, funny, often explicit stories introduce a powerful and provocative new literary voice.
God may be dead, but a new literary star is born ( Sunday Times)
The language is unflinching, the story uncompromising . A powerful and provocative novel and easily the most honest account of young Irish people for many years ( Guardian, on Here Are the Young Men)
A powerful, passionate and electrifying novel. Many writers try to recreate the traumas and anxieties of teenage years in fiction but very few manage it with as much conviction as Rob Doyle ( John Boyne, author of The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas)
A lament for the blank generation ... a powerful debut, maybe the first novel since Kevin Power's Bad Day in Blackrock to interrogate the dark side of the young Irish male's psyche ( Irish Times)
A dark and intoxicating debut (Irish Independent)
