Jay adores his small daughter, Bonnie, and nothing matters more to him than being a good father. But Bonnie's traumatic birth puts an unbearable strain on his marriage with Shauna, and the couple eventually separate. Struggling to cope with the separation from three-year-old Bonnie, Jay thinks constantly of his own mother, whom he hasn't seen since he fled Ireland a decade before. Resolved to move forward, Jay finds himself a flat share with two eccentric Kenyan businessmen, snags a role working on a documentary about the Millennium Dome (through 'Dublin Darren', an old laboring contact), and is utterly rigid in his commitment to Bonnie time. Indeed, things might have even begun to look up were it not for the arrival of an old 'friend' from home. 'The Clappers' is six foot tall, four foot wide, built like several Guinness barrels strapped together, and is all, all woman. She means well, and she means to make everything right for Jay. But inevitably she makes it wrong. A helter-skelter dash to Ireland results in some brutal revelations on behalf of Jay's mother, and an inevitable return to London culminates in a midnight epiphany in the shadow of Tony Blair, the queen, and Auld Lang Syne. Can Jay be a good father to Bonnie? Or is it too late? The Fields, also by Kevin Maher, was shortlisted for the Authors Club Best First Novel Award. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Owen McDonnell.

Ireland's Other Poetry
15,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

DRAWN FROM FOUR CENTURIES of writing in English by the famous and the forgotten, Ireland's Other Poetry: Anonymous to Zozimus is a major new anthology of entertaining and unusual poems, rhymes and songs. It revisits a forgotten Irish poetic landscape, bringing the reader on an exhilarating alphabetical tour through a country freighted with unexpected curiosities, from Dunluce to Belfast, Dublin, Cork and the Skelligs. Many anonymous or neglected poets, humorists and lyricists will be encountered, as will more celebrated writers, often in skittish mood. They range from Jonathan Swift to Shane MacGowan, by way of Flann O'Brien, Goldsmith, George Bernard Shaw and Christy Moore - as well as the occasional exotic visitor like Betjeman or Chesterton - to Michael Hartnett and Brendan Behan, Percy French and Oliver St John Gogarty, Ewart Milne and Derek Mahon, Tommy Makem and James Clarence Mangan: a gathering of the familiar and unfamiliar, on the wing. In Ireland's Other Poetry are memorable verses on food and philosophy, on courtship and cuckoldry, on Guinness and ghosts, on war, on murder, on lighting a match. Masterpieces of wordplay and parody rub shoulders with sporting songs, advertising jingles and lyrics from theatre. Here be nonsense verse, satire and stage Irish buffoonery, religious propaganda, doggerel, musichall bawdry, and good honest abuse - some of it politically incorrect, all of it captivating. With over 300 lively illustrations by Hector McDonnell, this wonderful tour d'horizon will become an essential reference work and companion for those interested in Irish writing, culture, or social life down the years, or for anyone who seeks the words of a favourite comic verse. JOHN WYSE JACKSON, for years a director of John Sandoe's Bookshop in London's Chelsea, now lives in County Wexford with his family. His books include John Stanislaus Joyce: The Life of James Joyce's Father (with Peter Costello), Flann O'Brien at War and We All Want To Change the World: A Life of John Lennon.
