REUNIONS. RECRIMINATIONS. RECKONINGS.

Ireland. Great nationalists, bad mothers and a whole lot of secrets. Ryan Cusack is ready to deliver its soundtrack.

Former sex-worker Georgie wants the truth about Ryan's past out there but the journalist has her own agenda.

Mel returns from Brexit Britain, ill-equipped to deal with the resurgence of a family scandal.

Karine has always been sure of herself, till a terrible secret tugs the rug from under her.

Maureen has got wind that things are changing, and if anyone's telling the story she wants to make sure it's her.

A riotous blast of sex, scandal, obsession, love, feminism, gender, music, class and transgression from an author with tremendous, singular talent.

'It's got all the crackle and verve and mad vivid life we've come to expect but it's so open-hearted and warm, too, and utterly engrossing - it's her best work to date, which is really saying something. Sharp and satisfying . . . McInerney's world is a compelling sleazy demi-monde of drug dealers, sex workers and property developers, and she has a pleasing disdain for minimalism: here you'll find big characters and lots of them'
- Guardian

'[Lisa McInerney has] high-voltage verve and an acute understanding of Ireland . . . [she is] a richly savage writer and an incisive chronicler of her home country'
- The Times

'No other writer captures the pained, complex lives of damaged young men and women in contemporary Ireland like McInerney does. With her savage wit and caustic eye there's no shirking of the ugly truths of Irish society and the havoc wreaked on innocent lives. This is a raw, intense novel, full of tenderness, humour and above all humanity.'
- Mary Costello

'Unsparing, unsentimental, but deeply affectionate... The Rules of Revelation is styish and relentlessly original'
- Nicole Flattery

'The Rules of Revelation is a perfect end to one of the best trilogies in modern Irish literature. McInerney's writing moves from the tragic to the hilarious with a dazzling deftness, examining a post-Crash Ireland - and its hypocrisy in how it shapes class, art, and feminism - with a gimlet eye. A triumph'
- Louise O'Neill
