Jammy Dodger, Paperback / softback Book

Jammy Dodger Paperback / softback


Life is sweet for would-be bohemian Artie Conville.

Safe at the helm of his subsidised magazine - with a cosy office paid for by the tax-payer - he's content to drift along quoting poetry, lingering over long lunches and flirting with the lovely Rosie McCann.

The main thing is to keep the real world - of nine-to-five jobs, mortgages and political violence - at bay.

So when his cushy number is threatened, Artie hatches a cunning plan to keep the funds coming in.

But events quickly spiral out of control and before long he is up to his ears in a bizarre fraud.

Can he avert disaster? Will he get the girl? With a cast of characters that includes a gun-toting playwright, a jealous police chief, a drunken actor and a giant white rabbit, this is a rich and riotous tale about coming-of-age in 1980s Belfast; a novel that is by turns darkly ironic and laugh-out-loud funny.
