Reviews

"Darkly exhilarating . . . God may be dead, but a new literary star is born." --"The Sunday Times"

"What we see when we pass through the sullen, monosyllabic and defensive exteriors that comprise most teenage boys will terrify parents everywhere--a vast, swarming cesspit of troubled thoughts, anxiety, turbulent sexual desires and disturbing violent ideation. . . . [Doyle] has a remarkable way of articulating the innermost thoughts of young men . . . [He] perfectly describes the disaffected experience of most suburban teenagers, the feeling of waiting for life to begin. . . . The result is a dark and intoxicating debut." --"Irish Independent"

""A Clockwork Orange," "Less Than Zero," "Trainspotting," "Fight Club" delinquent fiction warrants a bookshelf of its own. Rob Doyle's debut novel, "Here Are the Young Men," merits special attention . . . "Here Are the Young Men "probably won't go down well in polite society . . . So be it: brutalism is a young man's game . . . It's a rough but powerful debut." --"Irish Times"
