The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nightdress
Life has thrown Ross O'Carroll-Kelly the cruellest of hospital passes. Due to a small but crucial gap in his sex education, he has acquired an eight-year-old son from the wrong side of town. Now he must try to bond with the precocious Ronan while trying to put his broken marriage back together. It's a crash course in real life for Ross – and there's no past papers or cog notes this time.
"Howard returns with the usual humourous take on the rugby-playing, chino-wearing masses of southside Dublin, and for those who have enjoyed the previous Ross O'Carroll-Kelly books, there is plenty more to take pleasure in here... It is a world of 'birds', rugby, Ralph Lauren and Heineken – 'Ken' – that sets itself up as an easy target for Howard's damning observations and striking wit."
