The Glorious Heresies by Lisa McInerney

Winner of the 2016 Bailey’s Prize for Fiction, Lisa McInerney’s debut novel is a theatrical tour de force: she captures with brio the voice of her young antihero, the drug dealing Ryan, and through him we are allowed a glimpse of the impoverished, amoral, resilient existence of the residents on an estate in Cork: as well as the drugs, there are murders, the concealment of bodies, arson, prostitution, all of which are knitted up into a darkly humorous, compelling account of life for the underprivileged in the Ireland of the post-financial crash.
