Publisher's Summary

Jimmy Diaz is born a twin, and while he doesn't know it, his nearest sibling has stayed with him forever, overseeing the drama of his life played out and acting as a narrative voice.

When young, Jimmy loses a lower limb to a starving attack dog - this is the first of many disasters and one that shapes him to become a chancer, a willful man unafraid to stand up to a notorious Dublin gangster, but also a young man with heart and belief: a loyal son, a good friend, a courageous brother and a sweet and passionate lover.

Part love story, part coming of age, this is also the story of a life in the changing streets of Ireland, from the days of the Troubles to the boom and bust years and Dublin today.

    "Heartbreaking"

    This book is desperately sad and thought provoking. It's also beautiful. And we'll worth listening to.
