Vibrant visceral and violent this profane tragicomedy takes you deep into the dark heart of Ireland s depressed port city of Cork On the face of it this tale of gangsters prostitutes and addicts with no prospects other than criminality ought to be bleak and depressing but McInerney is a promising writer capable of brilliantly fiery descriptions and she really makes you care about her characters enough to make its resolution genuinely moving She is also fearlessly iconoclastic Illicit Desires Illicit unafraid to take telling swipes at the church and its hypocrisies and explore the less palatable elements of Irish societyThe narrative is complex and follows a group of characters who get entangled in the aftermath of a senseless death I could say about the characters and the plot but a bare statement of the plot would not do justice to theality of the writing Ireland has a number of terrific young writers and McInerney is among the best for a debut novel this is extraordinarily powerful When a strange man breaks into Maureen s home she does the most logical thing and bops him over the head with a religious statue That makes a bit of a mess so she calls her ganster son Jimmy
