9780862788490: The Teenage Dirt-bag Years

So there I was, roysh, class legend, schools rugby legend, basically all-round legend, when someone decides you can't, like, sit the Leaving Cert four times. Well that put a focking spanner in the works. But joining the goys at college wasn't the mare I thought it would be, basically for, like, three major reasons: beer, women and more women. And for once I agree with Fionn about the, like, education possibilities. I mean, where else can you learn about Judge Judy, laminating fake IDs and, like, how to order a Ken and snog a girl at the same time? I may be beautiful, roysh, but I'm not stupid and this much I totally know: college focking rocks.

About the Author:

Paul Howard helps Ross O'Carroll-Kelly to write his autobiographical series, largely because Ross can't really write, roysh? Find out more at rossocarrollkelly.com. He is also the author of the bestselling prison expose, The Joy, and co-author of Celtic Warrior, the autobiography of boxer Steve Collins. A former Sports Journalist of the Year, Paul covered the World Cup in Japan and Korea in 2002, and the rugby World Cup in Australia in 2003. His account of the Irish soccer squad and the notorious drama in Saipan, The Gaffers: Mick McCarthy, Roy Keane and the Team they Built, was a bestseller. Paul has also written several massively popular plays and has won the popular fiction prize at the Irish Book Awards three times for books in the Ross O'Carroll-Kelly series.

Review:

'Howard is the author of a superior account of life in Mountjoy and is the comic voice for the next decade.' -- Eoghan Corry, Andersonstown News `In The Teenage Dirtbag Years our dim rugger-bugger anti-hero explores third-level education. This lad makes Beavis and Butthead look like Harvard graduates.' -- Ferdia MacAnna, Sunday Independent 'Whether you love him or hate him, The Teenage Dirtbag Years will have you coming back for more.' -- Erica Walsh, Trinity News I don't regard the musings of O'Carroll-Kelly as being essentially humourous. I regard them as straight reportage, journalism of a very high order, which holds up a mirror to a way of life, a whole breed of men... -- Declan Lynch, Sunday Independent The funniest book of the year. -- Hot Press
