‘More uplifting than It’s a Wonderful Life’
Ireland on Sunday
They said I was a drug addict. But I
was a middle-class, convent-educated girl. And surely drug addicts were thinner?’
Life is good for Rachel Walsh. She has regular
congress with Luke Costello, a man who wears his
leather trousers tight. And she’s fond - some might
say too fond - of recreational drugs.
When she finds herself being frogmarched to
Dublin’s answer to the Betty Ford Clinic, she’s outraged. But on the plus side, it’s bound to be full of celebrities
in search of their inner child.
What Rachel isn’t expecting is middle-aged men in brown jumpers and more group therapy than you can shake a stick at. Who cares for introspection when
the view is damaged and broken?
Heartsick and Luke-sick, Rachel is
airlifted from addiction to the unfamiliar
terrain of adulthood, via a love story
or two, in a novel by turns poignant,
powerful and very, very funny.
