Like all twenty-year-olds, Ryan Cusack is trying to get his head around who he is. This is not a good time for his boss to exploit his dual heritage by opening a new black market route from Italy to Ireland. It is certainly not a good time for his adored girlfriend to decide he's irreparably corrupted. And he really wishes he hadn't accidentally caught the eye of an ornery grandmother who fancies herself his saviour. There may be a way clear of the chaos in the business proposals of music promoter Colm and in the attention of the charming, impulsive Natalie. But now that his boss's ambitions have rattled the city, Ryan is about to find out what he's made of, and it might be that chaos is in his blood.

Als Maureen Phelan nachts in ihrer Kuche einen Einbrecher uberrascht und ihn mit einer Devotionalie erschlagt, ahnt sie nicht, dass sie damit eine Reihe von fatalen Ereignissen in Gang setzt. Naturlich muss zunachst der Leichnam entsorgt und der Kuchenboden geschrubbt werden, allerdings hat Maureen eine ausgesprochene Abneigung gegen Hausarbeiten jedweder Art, weshalb sie ihren Sohn Jimmy einbestellt. Der kontrolliert das organisierte Verbrechen der Stadt, die Geldverleiher und Buchmacher, die Drogenkuriere und Zuhalter. Naturlich will auch Jimmy sich nicht die Hande schmutzig machen, das uberlasst er in der Regel anderen - beispielsweise seinem alten Kumpel Tony Cusack, Trinker, Vater von sechs Kindern, alleinerziehend, wenn man uberhaupt von Erziehung sprechen kann. Der alteste Sohn Ryan hat mit seinen funfzehn Jahren schon eine beachtliche Karriere als Dealer hingelegt. Eine seiner Klientinnen ist die junge Prostituierte Georgie. Deren Freund Robbie steigt gerne mal in Hauser ein und ist seit Kurzem spurlos verschwunden ... Lisa McInerneys Debutroman ist eine bitterbose Komodie uber die Macht des Zufalls und das Leben in einem krisengeschuttelten Land, das gepragt ist von Gewalt und Bigotterie. Eine literarische Tour de Force, fulminant erzahlt, voller Empathie und groteskem Humor.

The second novel from the author of the Baileys Prize-winning The Glorious Heresies 'Fast paced, compelling, and thrilling, Lisa McInerney writes the type of fiction that is both beautifully crafted and immensely enjoyable' Louise O'Neill 'The Blood Miracles has all the brio, street smarts and vicious linguistic verve of The Glorious Heresies, but with this follow up Lisa McInerney also reminds us just how brilliantly accomplished and ruthlessly focused a storyteller she is' Colin Barrett Like all twenty-year-olds, Ryan Cusack is trying to get his head around who he is.

From Lisa McInerney, hailed by The Irish Times as ';arguably the most talented writer at work in Ireland today,' comes The Glorious Heresies, a searing debut novel about life on the fringes of Ireland's post-crash society. When grandmother Maureen Phelan is surprised in her home by a stranger, she clubs the intruder with a Holy Stone. The consequences of this unplanned murder connect four misfits struggling against their meager circumstances. Ryan is a fifteen-year-old drug dealer desperate not to turn out like his alcoholic father, Tony, whose feud with his next-door neighbor threatens to ruin his family. Georgie is a sex worker who half-heartedly joins a born-again movement to escape her profession and drug habit. And Jimmy Phelan, the most fearsome gangster in the city and Maureen's estranged son, finds that his mother's bizarre attempts at redemption threaten his entire organization. Biting and darkly funny, The Glorious Heresies presents an unforgettable vision of a city plagued by poverty and exploitation, where salvation still awaits in the most unexpected places.
