The Butcher Boy

by Patrick McCabe

A young English punk narrates in slang & bad grammar the events of his life leading to the inevitable, final, horrible climax. It was fabulous, excellent, great, funny, horrifying, sad. A cross between Clockwork Orange and Chronicle Of a Death Foretold, the whole book is peppered with great, funny images like "two newspapers wrestling" on a deserted street. A great book.
