From the pen of one of Ireland's finest writers, "Things You Should Know" by John MacKenna is a story told in parallels.

On the one hand, it is an account of a writer hitting forty, a man whose marriage has ended at his own behest. Trying to reconnect with his children - kids he has neglected for many years - he stumbles from one day to another, never fully relating to them while trapped under the weight of his own guilt and uncertainty.

On the other, it is the story of a young boy growing up in a small midland village, running free through the summer, dreaming of becoming a writer. However, despite the promise of youth, he eventually grows into an uncertain young man who misses no opportunity to snipe at his father.

"Things You Should Know" is a book about growing up and growing old, about freedom and responsibility, about being a father and a son at the same time.
