Bogmail


Author: Patrick McGinley
0 (0 Votes)
A truly funny and stunningly well-told tale of murder in a small Irish village near Donegal, Bogmail is a classic of modern Irish literature. Set in a remote village in the west of Ireland, the action begins with a murder when Roarty, a publican and former priest, kills his bartender then buries his body in a bog. It's not long before Roarty starts getting blackmail letters, and matters quickly spiral out of his control. Twisty, turny, and enlivened with color that echoes the landscape and surroundings, Bogmail was Patrick McGinley's first novel, yet it remains just as fresh today as the day it first appeared.
