This debut novel by Northern Irish poet Eoghan Walls is simply wonderful! Unusual, funny, tragic and totally convincing despite some strange goings on. Orla McDevitt is a grieving teenager who, while cycling across England to visit her aunt in Ireland, meets an unusual man called Jesus with a particularly unique ability. A hilarious coming of age story that also encompasses the tragedy and mystery of faith and loss.
“Eoghan Walls manages to make every single emotion Orla feels—every thought, response and action—utterly convincing and fresh and original” –COLM TOIBIN
