The Gospel According to Blindboy by Blindboy Boatclub Readings and Signings

‘Essential, funny and disturbing.’ Danny Boyle

 

The Gospel According to Blindboy is a surreal and genre-defying collection of short stories and visual art exploring the myths, complacencies and contradictions at the heart of modern Ireland. Covering themes ranging from love and death to sex and politics, there’s a story about a girl from Tipp being kicked out of ISIS, a van powered by Cork people’s accents and a man who drags a fridge on his back through Limerick.

 

Whip-smart, provocative and animated by the author’s unmistakably dark wit, it is unlike anything else you will read this year.
