Happy St Patrick’s Day
NJ: Yeah, Butcher Boy said things about an Irish childhood that I’d never seen in fiction. It was one of those books that actually shows minute details and it was just so familiar to me. Breakfast on Pluto is quite different. This is more like a wild fantasy, really. When I read Breakfast on Pluto it seemed almost like a series of opportunities, you know? An opportunity to go on a journey that I hadn’t gone on before. (from Popmatters Interview)
Here is a trailer for The Butcher Boy. (Sinead O’Connor as the Virgin Mary)
