'A warm, touching, funny, sexy, romantic, thoroughly enjoyable, brilliantly-plotted page-turner ... a ray of sunshine' Hot Press

Five colleagues. One dreadful day. And the biggest shock of her life for high-flying career girl Katherine Casey, who'd believed she was safe from the job losses coming to Qwertec Solutions.
The mood is sombre as she and devastated ex-colleagues gather in the pub. But a few drinks later, with the discovery of a shared passion for the silver screen, things begin to look up. And the Forced Redundancy Film Club is born.
Over a year, Katherine, along with office oddball Alice, stressed out mother-of-three Lisa, professional sorrow-drowner Martin and cheating-heart Jamie meet up each month to watch their favourite classic films.
As they journey through Casablanca, Breakfast at Tiffany's, The Wizard of Oz, Brokeback Mountain and many others, each faces their own personal challenges: from negative-equity hell to heartache, loneliness, toddler-strife -- and the wrath of a certain bunny boiler. And each finds comfort in the one place where they're guaranteed a happy ending.
But will the dreams they dare to dream every really come true? Only time will tell...

'With his zeitgeist debut novel, Brian Finnegan - well-known media commentator and editor of GCN, Ireland's gay magazine - brings us a warm, funny, touching, sexy, romantic, thoroughly enjoyable, brilliantly-plotted page-turner, whose faith in the redemptive power of our love offers a ray of sunshine for our gloomy times.' - Adrienne Murphy, Hot Press

'An amusing read about coping with new beginnings' - Stellar magazine

'The beauty of The Forced Redundancy Film Club is that it can - like all classic movies - be enjoyed, not specifically by just women or just men, but by anyone who loves a good story' - entertainment.ie
