Seamus O'Rourke's hilarious look at growing up in rural Ireland in the 70s and 80s with an umbilical cord wrapped tightly around your neck... It follows the life of Padraig Potts, from falling in love with Silvia Lang, a perfect protestant girl ... to marrying Mary Tague, the local priests housekeeper and eventually to the realisation that the world isn't as big as he first thought. This is a story full of nostalgia, innocence, olympic-standard sex and holy water salad dressing. O'Rourke is a natural storyteller, balancing humour and pain as he goes.
