5 Reviews

Rated 0

Fiction, Modern & contemporary fiction (post c 1945)

Peter and Mary have been together since their teens. Happily so, for the most part. But now, suddenly, something seems to have gone wrong. Is it serious? Is it nothing? Do they need help?

Maybe. Maybe not. Either way, they're going to get it - from friends, from family, from total strangers. Because in a small town where everybody knows everybody else, personal problems don't remain personal for long. And with help like this, they'll be lucky to preserve their sanity, let alone their marriage...

Praise for Peter and Mary Have A Row

  • 'Undeniable flair for caricature...genuinely for the hapless couple of the title, their romantic travails are recounted in a narrative that veers back and forth between the comical and the thoughtful...entertaining light read - well-written and possessed of enough bittersweet moments to save it from being a succession of good one-liners' Irish Times on PETER AND MARY HAVE A ROW

  • 'Funny and entertaining, Peter and Mary Have a Row is a modern tale with a rural twist' Ireland on Sunday

  • 'It's hilarious...everything from existentialist nuns to hard ass girls. Every single man should read it to affirm how sad we really are' - Dermot O'Leary on DEAD CAT BOUNCE

  • 'If you really want to know how men behave when they're behaving really badly, read this. This is very funny' - Company on DEAD CAT BOUNCE

  • 'An insightful, very funny novel about the confusions of growing up, at whatever age. A fresh and absorbing peek into the mind of a bloke who's never quite got around to facing up to life' - Heat on DEAD CAT BOUNCE
