Crocodile Fever by Meghan Tyler

Ding dong the wankjob's dead. Cracked his back. Six feet under. Tiocfaidh ár lá. Freedom at last.

Northern Ireland, 1989. A farmhouse window smashes, and rebellious Fianna Devlin crashes back into the life of her pious sister Alannah.

Together in the unlovely family home for the first time in years following the death of their tyrannical father, the sisters are back at each other's throats in seconds. And when Fianna discovers that the old reptile is in fact still very much alive, all hell breaks loose as they confront his hideous legacy.

Fuelled by Taytos, gin, 80s anthems and a chainsaw, it's the Devlin sisters versus the world. It can't end happily, but it can end gloriously.

Like Thelma and Louise's punk daughter, Meghan Tyler's surreal Crocodile Fever is a grotesque black comedy celebrating sisterhood whilst reminding us that the pressure cooker of The Troubles is closer than we imagine.
