From Lisa McInerney, hailed by The Irish Times as "arguably the most talented writer at work in Ireland today," comes The Glorious Heresies, a searing debut novel about life on the fringes of Ireland's post-crash society.
When grandmother Maureen Phelan is surprised in her home by a stranger, she clubs the intruder with a Holy Stone. The consequences of this unplanned murder connect four misfits struggling against their meager circumstances. Ryan is a fifteen-year-old drug dealer desperate not to turn out like his alcoholic father, Tony, whose feud with his next-door neighbor threatens to ruin his family. Georgie is a sex worker who half-heartedly joins a born-again movement to escape her profession and drug habit. And Jimmy Phelan, the most fearsome gangster in the city and Maureen's estranged son, finds that his mother's bizarre attempts at redemption threaten his entire organization.
Biting and darkly funny, The Glorious Heresies presents an unforgettable vision of a city plagued by poverty and exploitation, where salvation still awaits in the most unexpected places.

"The Glorious Heresies "is a blisteringly good debut which manifests the true coming of a brilliant new energy in Irish fiction. It's a love story which captures perfectly the feeling of what it is to be young and bowled over by the beauty of another; it's the story of a city, savage and hilarious and coursing deeper and deeper, with every page into that city's dark veins. It's so much more. It's talent, undeniable and aglow. Belinda McKeon

"A wonderfully offbeat voice. . . . McInerney s characters aren t what anyone would call saints, but they re so richly drawn you have to respect the way they think and sympathize with their moral conflicts." "The New York Times" Book Review
Lisa McInerney s first novel takes off like a house on fire and doesn t stop until it has singed the reader s heart. Love, crime, and cockeyed redemption meet on a hardscrabble housing estate in County Cork, Ireland, in a rare blend of heartbreak and humour. . . . Ms McInerney is a writer to watch. " The Economist"
McInerney's debut won the 2016 Baileys Prize for Women's Fiction, and you can see why from the first page. Her lively, unexpected prose brings these characters and the crucible of their surroundings to life. "Elle"
A bleak, powerful novel. . . . Darkly comic. . . . McInerney writes an energetic, profane prose laced with the vibrant idiom of Cork street life. "The Washington Post"
A smart and sharp tale of Ireland s fringe inhabitants, "The Glorious Heresies"only cements its author's esteemed reputation as one of her nation's most brilliant novelists. Refinery29

Drugs, booze, obscenity, violence and black humor fuel Lisa McInerney s audacious first novel. . . . The Glorious Heresies is impressive for its moral complexity, and for the energy and virtuosity of its language: a strange, pleasing music that lingers in your mind. The New York Times

The novel s searing take on contemporary Cork is elegantly leavened by empathy and humor. . . . McInerney s characters are vibrantly-drawn, richly-rendered, and wonderfully full of surprises. The Boston Globe
Wonderful. . . . What could be a grim tale is lifted by McInerney s eye for black comedy. . . . I would highly recommend it for the sheer musicality of the language. The Paris Review Daily
