In this subversive, comic extravaganza, Dublin-born Trevor washes up in New York as companion to Ed, an impossibly rich, terminally ill young man. A bizarre, twisted friendship develops between the co-dependents but we are also introduced to Ed's bed-ridden, morbidly obese, sexually perverse mother; his guilt-ridden father, the Judge, who rarely emerges from his dusty office; the cold-hearted physiotherapist on whom Trevor becomes fixated, and the pot-smoking Caribbean chef who becomes his confidante. In this tale of obsession, control and madness, the dynamics of love, patience and understanding are explored. Upbeat, defiant, dark and morally ambiguous, this effervescent narrative enters the mind of the film-school dropout whose story it tells. An Irish take on "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest" and "A Confederacy of Dunces", it announces an exciting new talent in Irish literature.
