Description

An American is burdened by a recurrent dream about his native Ireland, a country that had long ceased to interest or troubles him. Convinced that the Irish are asking him for help, he equips his errant grand-nephew, Tom Blessman, with a generous bank account, and dispatches him to the old country to offer assistance.

Préface
A delightfully quirky, witty satire of the 'New Ireland' through the eyes of a bewildered American adrift in Dublin.

Auteur
Anne Haverty has published two previous novels: One Day As A Tiger (winner of the Rooney Prize and shortlisted for the 1997 Whitbread First Novel Award) and The Far Side Of A Kiss (longlisted for the Booker Prize). Chatto also publishes her poetry, including The Beauty of the Moon (a Poetry Book Society recommendation). Born in Tipperary, she now lives in Dublin.

Résumé
New Yorker Tom Blessman arrives in Dublin with a purpose - to spend money. As he attempts to make sense of his mission - and resolve his own personal problems - he falls in with a lively crowd, all exploiting to the full this opportunistic new world.
