Lisa McInerney

  • Jimmy Phelan trône sur la ville de Cork comme sur un tas de billets. Il est de toutes les magouilles, et mieux vaut marcher dans son sens que croiser son chemin. Pourtant sa mère, Maureen, fraîchement installée dans l'ancien bordel dont il est propriétaire, réussit à semer la pagaille dans ce bel équilibre. Quand un inconnu se présente à sa porte, elle lui assène un coup fatal et déclenche une série de malheurs dans cette ville où cohabitent dealers, prostituées et chrétiens illuminés se faisant un devoir de réparer les dégâts... qu'ils ont eux-mêmes causés. Mais Maureen n'est pas née de la dernière pluie et compte bien se laver de toute culpabilité à sa façon.

  • Miracles du sang, sans être une suite des Hérésies glorieuses (The Glorious Heresies), reprend un de ses personnages, Ryan Cusack. Le jeune dealer amoureux est maintenant âgé de 20 ans. Il essaie de trouver sa place dans l'univers sans pitié de Cork, entre la violence de son père alcoolique, l'absence de sa mère, la douceur de sa petite-amie Karine, et la drogue omniprésente. Lorsque son meilleur ami Dan, le deuxième plus gros dealer de la ville, a l'idée de tirer profit des origines italiennes de Ryan pour développer ses entreprises illégales, le jeune homme se retrouve une fois de plus plongé dans les méandres inquiétants de sa ville.
    Progressivement, il s'impose comme l'interlocuteur de premier choix de la mafia napolitaine dans l'acheminement de l'ecstasy en Irlande et fait de nouvelles rencontres périlleuses.
    Abandonné par Karine, acculé, il prend des décisions aux répercussions dramatiques. Le fragile équilibre qu'il avait réussi à construire résistera-t-il à l'engrenage mortifère dans lequel il est pris ?

  • 'He was definitely dead, whoever he was. He wore a once-black jumper and a pair of shiny tracksuit bottoms. The back of his head was cracked and his hair matted, but it had been foxy before that. A tall man, a skinny rake, another string of piss, now departed. She hadn't gotten a look at his face before she flaked him with the Holy Stone and she couldn't bring herself to turn him over.' One messy murder affects the lives of five misfits who exist on the fringes of Ireland's post-crash society. Ryan is a fifteen-year-old drug dealer desperate not to turn out like his alcoholic father Tony, whose obsession with his unhinged next-door neighbour threatens to ruin him and his family. Georgie is a prostitute whose willingness to feign a religious conversion has dangerous repercussions, while Maureen, the accidental murderer, has returned to Cork after forty years in exile to discover that Jimmy, the son she was forced to give up years before, has grown into the most fearsome gangster in the city. In seeking atonement for the murder and a multitude of other perceived sins, Maureen threatens to destroy everything her son has worked so hard for, while her actions risk bringing the intertwined lives of the Irish underworld into the spotlight . . .

    Biting, moving and darkly funny, The Glorious Heresies explores salvation, shame and the legacy of Ireland's twentieth-century attitudes to sex and family.

  • The second novel from the author of the Baileys Prize-winning The Glorious HeresiesLike all twenty-year-olds, Ryan Cusack is trying to get his head around who he is. This is not a good time for his boss to exploit his dual heritage by opening a new black market route from Italy to Ireland. It is certainly not a good time for his adored girlfriend to decide he's irreparably corrupted. And he really wishes he hadn't accidentally caught the eye of an ornery grandmother who fancies herself his saviour. There may be a way clear of the chaos in the business proposals of music promoter Colm and in the attention of the charming, impulsive Natalie. But now that his boss's ambitions have rattled the city, Ryan is about to find out what he's made of, and it might be that chaos is in his blood.
