In his first foray into fiction the funny man with the plastic bag on his head reveals an astounding literary talent. The Gospel According to Blindboy is a surreal and genre-defying collection of short stories and visual art exploring the myths, complacencies and contradictions at the heart of modern Ireland. Covering everything from love and death to sex and politics, it's pitched halfway between the Angelus and Oculus Rift, globalisation and gombeenism.
Whip-smart and provocative, and animated by the author's unmistakably dark wit, it recalls some of the nation's most acclaimed literary voices - such as Flann O'Brien and Kevin Barry - while simultaneously breaking new and exciting ground. Unlike anything else you're going to read this year.
