Here Are The Young Men
A remarkable debut novel by Rob Doyle. 'Powerful, passionate and electrifying' - John Boyne The Boy in the Striped Pyjamastos
As they face the void of their post-school lives, Matthew, Rez, Cocker and Kearny spend their first summer of freedom in a savage apprenticeship on the streets of Dublin. Roaming aimlessly through the city, fuelled by drugs and dark fantasies, the teenagers spiral into self-destruction, fleeing a reality they despise.
Set against the backdrop of Celtic-Tiger Ireland, Here are the Young Men portrays a chilling spiritual fallout, harbinger of the collapse of the national illusion. Visceral and blackly funny, this remarkable debut novel releases an unnerving anarchic energy to devastating effect.
