Rockin’ the Bronx: A new novel from Larry Kirwan

Black 47 Larry Kirwan releases his new novel on Feb. 23rd – I have an advance copy so as soon as I’m done I’ll let you know how it reads. A book report if you like. In the mean time here is a blurb from the publishers:

“In this big, passionate, colourful novel set in 1980-82, the Bronx is burning, Bobby Sands is dying, John Lennon is being stalked, the Reagan Revolution has begun and AIDS is about to be identified. But life goes on in the immigrant bars of Bainbridge Avenue as Sean arrives from Ireland looking for his girlfriend, Mary, and finds a lot more than he bargained for. ”
