Hello Mr Bones

Pat McCabe

GOODBYE MR RAT: an IRA bomber watches over his ex-lover as she takes his ashes back to his rural hometown. This girl from northern Indiana may not be ready for rural Ireland, yet the townsfolk of Iron Valley certainly have plans for her...

Stark, blackly humorous and compressed to the point of detonation; McCabe writes like M. R. James took a dread wrong turning on an Irish country road.

'Exuberant and witty ... Deserves to rekindle his former glories' - The Times

'McCabe is a master ... Stark, fierce, and wonderful' - Guardian

'Sees the master of the Irish gothic genre return to his best form' Observer. - Observer

HELLO MR BONES: two damaged souls have, thanks to each other's love, turned their lives around. But as London's weather takes a turn for the worse, so do their fates, when raw evil runs riot the night of the impossible hurricane.
