Conan Kennedy's now classic first novel, written and published years back when he was still Gerry Kennedy. Best described as the story of an affair between an older man and a young teen. It's funny. Very. More
Written and published (O’Brien Press, Dublin) long years ago when Conan Kennedy was still the youthful Gerry Kennedy, this classic novel was described by Judge Richard Johnston (former President of Ireland’s High Court) as “the funniest book he ever read”. (Granted, he must’ve read a lot of law books but nonetheless!) Here Be Ghosts is the story of a modern affair between an older man and a young teenage girl. He imagines himself to be Patrick Pearse, Irish revolutionary hero, and she takes part as the heroine of Irish mythology, Deirdre of The Sorrows. The courts don’t believe them either.
