I have just finished reading the best book I have read all year. Skippy Dies A Novel by Paul Murray. If it hadn’t been on the Quick Picks shelf at my local library I probably would have not considered it at all. With its retro cover and the title immediately making me think of Skippy the bush kangaroo it wasn’t until I read the blurb that I realised it was much much more. Set in the 21st century in an Irish Catholic boy’s boarding school, say no more!
Paul Murray, if by any chance you stumble across this blog…Congratulations on a brilliant piece of writing and I look forward to reading your prize winning first novel and any more you are working on.
