Critics’s choice

heresiesLisa McInerney is getting rave reviews for her first novel, The Glorious Heresies. In Cork during the recent recession, sixty-year-old Maureen Phelan accidentally kills an intruder with a religious relic.  Mrs. Phelan so happens to be the mother of notorious crime boss Jimmy Phelan. To cover his mother’s crime, Phelan hires a Tony, a “cleaner,” to sort out the mess. Instead of sorting it out, he uncovers secrets of the Phelans, her victim, the Church and more.  This “spectacular debut” (The Telegraph) is “daring, exuberant” (The Observer) and “fiendishly hilarious”(The Times).
