Dark and irreverent, MOHAMMED MAGUIRE is a wickedly funny fable by bestselling author Bateman.

When the Marines destroy a terrorist training camp in the Libyan desert, they also kill both the parents of a ten-year-old boy, Mohammed Maguire.

Brought back to Ireland, the land of his mother's birth, young Mohammed is treated as a public relations commodity by both sides of an argument that he doesn't understand - but which he can see with the clear eyes of a child.

Wickedly funny and wonderfully abrasive, MOHAMMED MAGUIRE is Bateman at his very best.

Praise for Mohammed Maguire

  • It is as if Spike Milligan teamed up with Flann O'Brien with the idea of writing a farce about Northern Ireland in the 80s. We are offered free-wheeling lunacy, satire, raw comedy and wonderful abrasive dialogue - Sunday Tribune
