9780899190310: BOGMAIL

A truly funny and stunningly well-told tale of murder in a small Irish village near Donegal, Bogmail is a classic of modern Irish literature. Set in a remote village in the west of Ireland, the action begins with a murder when Roarty, a publican and former priest, kills his bartender then buries his body in a bog. It's not long before Roarty starts getting blackmail letters, and matters quickly spiral out of his control. Twisty, turny, and enlivened with color that echoes the landscape and surroundings, Bogmail was Patrick McGinley's first novel, yet it remains just as fresh today as the day it first appeared.

About the Author:

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.

Review:

'A beguiling crime fiction-flavoured cocktail which McGinley serves up with lively, lyrical and literary flair while conjuring an evocatively rendered rural backdrop' Irish Times. 'A horrific concoction of filth ... a picture of life in Donegal that is revolting in the extreme ... A shocking libel' Donegal Democrat. 'Dark, twisted and blackly hilarious' Declan Burke. 'A rich and loving novel, Bogmail is full of wonder' New York Magazine.
