The Runners: Fiachra Sheridan’s The Runners follows the adventures of Bobby and his best friend Jay, two lively 13-year-olds growing up in inner-city Dublin in the 1980s. Sheridan skilfully explores the intensity of adolescent friendships, and the natural hunger for new experience. The fragility of innocence is also revealed, as the two friends inadvertently become embroiled in an adult world that is beyond their control.
Darling Sweetheart: Stephen Price is back with another witty and satirical novel in the style of Monkey Man, this time set in the glamourous world of film-making! Young actress Annalise Palatine has gotten her first big Hollywood break, but as she struggles to get under the skin of her part and fend off the advances of her famous co-star and producer, Annalise's grip on reality starts to slip. She finds her self increasingly haunted by her troubled past, but sometimes the ghosts that haunt us can take very strange forms indeed!
Irish Apartheid: Health services are top of the public and political agenda in Ireland, yet much of the rhetoric is confused, and most people cannot understand why the system is the way it is. Irish Medical Media Award winner Sara Burke here brings her considerable analytic skills to bear on the Irish healthcare system, deconstructing it in layman's terms. Written for any Irish citizen who is concerned with the inequality that is at the core of Irish health policy, this book is also crucial reading for people who study or work in the health services, for policymakers and politicians.
Praise for Irish Apartheid: 'Forensic, rigorous, compelling...essential reading for anyone who cares about what's gone wrong with Irish health policy and how we can put it right.' Fintan O'Toole
Divided Paradise: A Divided Paradise: An Irishman in the Holy Land is a vivid account of ordinary life in one of the world’s most contested and volatile regions. Award winning journalist David Lynch brings to life stories from both the Palestinian and Israeli street. From coming under fire in the occupied West Bank, to visiting the ‘First Irish Pub in Palestine’, to talking Armageddon with young dispirited Israelis in Tel Aviv, personal experiences are interwoven with broad historical analysis. A provocative introduction to the political and personal tragedy suffered by the Palestinian people and the continuing wider Middle Eastern conflict.
Don’t Mention the Wars: A Brysonesque journey through European stereotypes with RTÉ’s high-profile European correspondent. An amusing, topical, witty and fascinating look at Europe and Europeans. Tony Connelly goes on a quest to discover the origins and veracity behind the stereotypes each European nation has inherited.
• In Austria, Connelly attends a ball in the Hofberg Palace, where he is struck by the terrible nostalgia for a lost empire.
• In France, the history of the baguette makes an appearance, alongside Connelly’s search for the ultimate in Rude Waiters.
• In Italy he attends a 100th birthday party to explore the stereotype of Mamma and ‘the Family’.
Where have our notions of stereotypical behaviour come from? And do they have any bearing on the modern-day European?
