New fiction: The Glorious Heresies

An exuberant debut from Irish writer Lisa McInerney


New fiction: The Glorious Heresies

Lisa McInerney’s glorious, riotous, sweary debut tracks the lives of five outsiders living in Ireland’s post-boom badlands, from teenage dealer Ryan, who’s escaping his father’s fists, to Maureen, who killed someone accidentally 40 years ago and is back at home at the behest of her gangster son, Jimmy.

It delves into the complicated webs of relationships that make up a family, and explores shame and the search for redemption with wholehearted exuberance.

The Glorious Heresies by Lisa McInerney, ( John Murray £16.99)
