John Boorman’s comment on this book: ’The funniest, most beguiling, cruelly dysfunctional family ever!’ It is a masterful debut novel.

Irish eccentricity pervades The House of Slamming Doors.

Set at the time of President Kennedy's visit to Ireland in 1963, Mark Macauley's enjoyable tale of a dysfunctional clan of Anglo-Irish aristocrats centres on 13-year-old Justin Montague, heir to a rural estate, who enrages his bullying father by befriending a servant's daughter.

Replete with the perennial tensions between native and settler, servant and master, Camelot and Leinster House, this poignant tale concerns identity and first love, and the pain of a knowing child living amongst aliens.

Told with the panache of Roddy Doyle crossed with J.D. Salinger, it conveys the spirit of a bygone age and the very present emotions of a fast-growing boy.
