Ross O’Carroll-Kelly is a man of the people – if the people are basically birds and drop-dead focking gorgeous. Because life is short, roysh, so you can’t fock about with, like, rolling mauls, you’ve got to head straight for the line. Which is second nature to a try-scorer like me, given my ball-handling skills. How the hell did I get so lucky? Focked if I know.
Ross O’Carroll-Kelly is the author of several bestselling books including; The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Dress, Should Have Got Off at Sydney Parade, and This Champagne Mojito is the Last Thing I Own.
This is the thirteenth novel in Paul Howard’s satirical Ross O’Carroll-Kelly series which began in an Irish newspaper column in 1998 and have since sold half a million copies. With a series based so much on immediate satire it’s difficult to know whether those new to the series should start way back at the beginning with The Miseducation Years and work their way through Ireland’s boom and bust or enjoy the wicked humour and present setting. For those who love Ross (or more accurately love to hate him) this is Howard back on form and the steady redemption.
