9780007329281: 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.

Review:

Praise for Divorcing Jack:

‘As sharp as a pint of snake-bite… Richly paranoid and very funny’ Sunday Times

Praise for Cycle of Violence:

‘Fast-paced, very black and very funny. Roddy Doyle meets Carl Hiaasen’ Independent on Sunday

Praise for Of Wee Sweetie Mice and Men:

From the Back Cover:

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 wickedly 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 certainly appeal to his growing army of fans.

'There is more to Bateman than a racy plot. His prose is intelligent as well as aesthetically satisfying, his dialogue toughly funny and tone-perfect.'
MAIL ON SUNDAY
