Rhino What You Did Last Summer
Sacked as the coach of the Andorra rugby team and on the run from the sister I never knew I had, I headed for La La Land, vowing to win back my wife and daughter from Cillian, a risk-assessor, predicting doom for the world economy. Of course, one nose job and one abdominal resculpt later, I no longer knew where reality ended and reality TV began...
"Over the guts of the last decade, nobody has served to expose the gross absurdities of modern Irish life as Paul Howard's beautifully grotesque creation... A sly pastiche of American reality television."
"Howard pulls it out of the bag again. When Ross goes to La La Land, it's obvious that he has found the perfect milieu in which to thrive, outside Kielys. As ever, there are laugh-out-loud moments aplenty. Howard captures the insanity of celebrity culture perfectly... I devoured every word."
"It's inexcusably shallow, deliberately vulgar, puerile and offensive - and it made me laugh like a drain. Indeed, there are sequences so funny that I had trouble breathing... Ross is back and the world is a better place for it."
Ferdia McAnna, Irish Times
"A masterful piece of comic writing... Endlessly inventive and magnificently plotted."
