Paddy Clarke Ha Ha Ha

Front Cover
Wheeler Pub., Apr 1, 1994 - Fiction - 328 pages
0 Reviews
Winner of the 1993 Booker Prize. Paddy Clarke admires Chief Geronimo. He can't stand his wimpy little brother. His best friend is Kevin, and their names are written in wet cement all over Barrytown. He wants to be a missionary like Father Damien, and he longs to stop the arguing between his ma and da. Filled with salty Doyle dialogue and characters, exuberant and earthy.
