Ollie is back home in Sligo, but his mind is still in London. He is keeping life simple, dealing with trolleys in the supermarket, dosing with some art students, treading quietly on the stairs, watching himself. But close his eyes and he's back in the city with his pal Marty, queuing for jobs on building sites and drinking in The Lag. At night the terror closes in: the gangsters, the protection rackets, Scots Bob and Silver John, his brother Redmond. Finally, he realizes that he must go back and face his ghosts.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Sudden Times is the simplest, perhaps the most directly powerful of Dermot Healy's extraordinary novels. Comic and brutal, it has all the excitement of a page-turner and the immediacy of a poem."-Neil Jordan
"Original and astringent and touching and eerily pure . . . a wonderful book which asks to be compared with Joyce and Beckett in more than just an idle way."-Times Literary Supplement
