We're really pleased to have been give some exclusive, signed copies of David's Keenan's second novel, ahead of its official release next month.
Based on apocryphal stories he was told by his family, For The Good Times plunges the reader into the dark night of Belfast in the 1970s: an era of military terror and sectarian violence, of occult visions and religious intensity.
Sammy and his three friends live in the Ardoyne, an impoverished, predominantly Catholic area of north Belfast. They dream of a Free State, and their methods for achieving this are uncompromising. When the hard edge of the decade starts to reveal its true paranoid colours, Sammy finds himself increasingly isolated, especially after bizarre and gruesome away days in Glasgow and London.
For The Good Times unpacks any dewy-eyed romance associated with the Troubles with visionary depth and power.
