BeschreibungIt's 1924, and New York is the centre of the universe. Henry Smart, on the run from Dublin, falls on his feet. He is a handsome man with a sandwich board, behind that he stashes hooch for the speakeasies of the Lower East Side. He catches the attention of the mobsters who run the district and soon there are eyes on his back and men in the shadows.
PortraitRoddy Doyle was born in Dublin in 1958. He is the author of nine acclaimed novels, one collection of short stories and Rory & Ita, a memoir about his parents. He won the Booker Prize in 1993 for Paddy Clarke Ha Ha Ha. His last book, The Dead Republic, was the final volume in the Henry Smart trilogy.
Pressestimmen"* 'Sequels often disappoint, but here is one that's every bit as sharp, as surprising and as satisfying as the original' Guardian * 'Doyle's performance is, again, extraordinary for the richness of allusion, the facility with which history is dovetailed with invention, the energy of the prose' Daily Telegraph * 'Brilliantly imagined...Utterly magnificent, the finest work he has done' Sunday Tribune * 'Kicks off at a furious lick and just gets faster, hotter, louder-Hugely, unremittingly entertaining' Scotsman"
