This is Now

By Ciara Geraghty

  • E-Book
  • £P.O.R.

Honest and wise, poignant and warm, this is completely absorbing storytelling for fans of Marian Keyes and Jojo Moyes.

An ordinary day. An ordinary bank. An ordinary street in an ordinary town. Nothing ever happens, until, one day, a shocking robbery turns life upside down for five people.
Honest and wise, poignant and warm, this is completely absorbing storytelling for fans of Marian Keyes and Jojo Moyes.

Afterwards . . .
The first thing Martha thinks about is having a drink. There are six reasons why she shouldn't; she wrote them down over a year ago. Two of the reasons are the same. A name. Of someone she didn't think she'd ever see again.
Roman, a fourteen-year-old Polish immigrant, is on the run. From the police. From Jimmy and his gang. He understands now, what it means to be caught between a rock and a hard place.
Tobias, old and alone, lies in a hospital bed in Dublin where the memories in Dresden are insistent visitors.
And for Cillian, a police detective, the past is like a current, pulling him back, reminding him of all he'd had. All he'd lost.
Each of the four is running from the moments that brought them here. To a place where the past cannot be undone and the future cannot be known.
A place called now.

In Giving Out Yards, Tara Flynn puts paid to the long-debated question of what makes us Irish, nailing it in one collective and hilarious grumble-fest. Her razor-sharp wit and keen analysis of those topics that bring us out in a rash - and running to the phone/laptop/neighbour for a healthy dose of spleen-venting - leaves no moan unturned.Strictly non-solutions-based (if we found those, what on earth would we give out about?), here you'll find plenty of advice on how best to milk your grievances, with handy lists and tips, and a cast of characters including Tom the Taxi Driver, Mairead Who Loves the Sound of Her Own Voice and Ciaran the Keyboard Warrior.If you can't beat them - 'That shower in the Dail', 'the other shower', the Angelus bongs, cyclists, potholes, the three Ds (drips, drink and drugs), criminals of all collar-hue, to name but a few - then you might as well knock the craic out of them. So look no further: the whine-line is open ...
