內容簡介

愛爾蘭知名部落客Lisa McInerney初試啼聲便獲獎的小說,以黑色幽默揭露愛爾蘭的底層人生。

2016年百利酒最佳女作家小說獎(Baileys' Women's Prize for Fiction 2016)
2016年Desmond Elliott 獎

「精采的初試啼聲之作...強悍而溫柔,抒情的哥德風,一部關於分崩離析之國的令人目眩神迷的作品。」
--《電訊報》(The Telegraph)

作者Lisa McInerney 在部落格"愛爾蘭屁眼" (Arse End of Ireland,意指人們最不願造訪的愛爾蘭第二大城 - 科克市(Cork City)),她化身為Sweary Lady,為被經濟崩潰所重擊的底層民眾抒發不滿之聲。理所當然地,她的第一本小說The Glorious Heresies便以科克市為這本小說的主要場景。

一件謀殺案將五個社會邊緣人串連在一起:

Maureen - 誤殺了一個闖進家門的男人,不得不離開所居之地,過了40年的逃亡生涯。
Jimmy - 40年前Maureen被迫放棄的兒子,如今已成為城裡人人害怕的幫派份子。
Ryan - 15歲的毒販,努力地不讓自己步上那個不負責任的老爸後塵。
Tony - 一個酒鬼、不夠格的父親,迷戀隔壁那個擾亂人心的女人,快把自己和家庭都給毀掉的男人。
Georgie - 一個妓女,假裝改宗的意願到頭來卻浮現出危機。

Maureen想為那件謀殺案贖罪,並且感到幾樁罪惡事件即將發生,因此回到科克城。她的行動威脅了他兒子辛苦建立的一切,也將愛爾蘭底層社會所交織的生命,攤在聚光燈下。

一本冷諷、動人、黑色幽默的小說,探索救贖與羞恥以及20世紀愛爾蘭對家庭與性的傳統態度。

LONGLISTED FOR THE THEAKSTONS OLD PECULIAR CRIME NOVEL OF THE YEAR

'The Glorious Heresies heralds the arrival of a glorious, foul-mouthed, fizzing new talent' SUNDAY TIMES

'Totally and unmistakably the real deal' KEVIN BARRY

'A real stunner; a wild ride of a read' DONAL RYAN

'A gripping and often riotously funny tale' COLIN BARRETT

'A punchy, edgy, sexy, fizzing feast of a debut novel' JOSEPH O'CONNOR

'He was definitely dead, whoever he was. He wore a once-black jumper and a pair of shiny tracksuit bottoms. The back of his head was cracked and his hair matted, but it had been foxy before that. A tall man, a skinny rake, another string of piss, now departed. She hadn't gotten a look at his face before she flaked him with the Holy Stone and she couldn't bring herself to turn him over.'

One messy murder affects the lives of five misfits who exist on the fringes of Ireland's post-crash society. Ryan is a fifteen-year-old drug dealer desperate not to turn out like his alcoholic father Tony, whose obsession with his unhinged next-door neighbour threatens to ruin him and his family. Georgie is a prostitute whose willingness to feign a religious conversion has dangerous repercussions, while Maureen, the accidental murderer, has returned to Cork after forty years in exile to discover that Jimmy, the son she was forced to give up years before, has grown into the most fearsome gangster in the city. In seeking atonement for the murder and a multitude of other perceived sins, Maureen threatens to destroy everything her son has worked so hard for, while her actions risk bringing the intertwined lives of the Irish underworld into the spotlight . . .

Biting, moving and darkly funny, The Glorious Heresies explores salvation, shame and the legacy of Ireland's twentieth-century attitudes to sex and family.
