9780002261180: Mohammed Maguire

A dark and bleakly funny fable from the author of Divorcing Jack.

A little boy left for dead when the US Marines destroy a terrorist training camp in the Libyan desert, Mohammed Maguire is brought back to Ireland, the land of his mother’s birth, where he is treated as a public relations commodity by all sides of an argument he doesn’t understand, but which he can see with the clear eyes of a child.

A dark and bleakly funny fable, Mohammed Maguire is in some respects quite different from Colin Bateman’s continuing series of Dan Starkey bestsellers, but with its humour and wild imagination it will appeal to his growing army of fans.
