About the author

It is funny and heart-warming one minute, dark and serious the next and the interplay between reality and delusion is constant in a way that the boundary between the two is often blurred if not crossed and re-crossed.
In short, it's a strong recommendation from me - I started it with an open mind and having rapidly consumed the unfolding tale, I finished it with a sense of having experienced something, felt moved and grateful for the journey.
This novel is a wonderful fevered dream of a book. You never quite know what is real and what is part of the characters delusions. Father Limerick is a brilliant creation, part piteous part monstrous.
This book is not quite like anything I have read before but it did remind me a little of the film 'And starring Pancho Villa as himself' (a film well worth watching if you get the chance) and a little of some of the real life accounts of child soldiers in Africa and the far east.
A book well worth getting and, if you're anything like me, reading well into the night.
In a world that is surreal and yet so well-drawn that I believed it all, Father Gerard Limerick became a man that I pray I never meet, whilst Rico is a hero that will live long in my memory.
