A rediscovered classic of Irish literature, this darkly comic tale tells of murder and its consequences.
Set in a remote village in the northwest of Ireland, Roarty, a publican and former priest, kills his lecherous bartender and buries him in a bog. When Roarty begins to receive blackmail letters, matters quickly spiral out of his control.
Alive with the loquacious brio of his pub's eccentric regulars, and full of the bleak beauty of the Donegal landscape, Patrick McGinley's rural gothic novel is a modern masterpiece.
Patrick McGinley settled in Britain in the 1960s and now lives in Kent. His eight novels include Foggage, The Trick of the Ga Bolga and Goosefoot, which was made into a film.
