Confessions of a Fallen Angel is a fresh, highly original debut by a writer not afraid to take on the bigger issues of life. Fate and love in their many guises stalk these pages, as well as a man who, like the hero in a Greek tragedy, rails against the destiny mapped out to him, trying only to safeguard what he holds dear. It will grip you from the first paragraph.
Told in a lively Dublin vernacular . . . Ronan O'Brien has a fine sense of drama, marrying the minutiae of everyday life to the extraordinary, with spirited aplomb.
Spooky, magical and engrossing
This thrilling tale will keep you reading long into the night
Part tender, idiosyncratic story about love and redemption, part black comedy
