The Glorious Heresies

WINNER OF THE BAILEYS´ WOMEN´S PRIZE FOR FICTION 2016

WINNER OF THE DESMOND ELLIOT PRIZE 2016

We all do stupid things when we´re kids.

Ryan Cusack´s grown up faster than most - being the oldest of six with a dead mum and an alcoholic dad will do that for you.

And nobody says Ryan´s stupid. Not even behind his back.

The only one on Ryan´s side is his girlfriend Karine. If he blows that, he´s all alone.

But the truth is, you don´t know your own strength till you need it.
