A Mad and Wonderful Thing

by Mark Mulholland
£8.99   paperback  Scribe Publications (2016)

A Mad and Wonderful Thing by Mark Mulholland 'You wouldn't get involved, Johnny, would you? What about those terrible bombs? You wouldn't do a bad thing, would you?'
Johnny Donnelly is a passionate young man, deeply in love with literature, with his country and with the beautiful Cora Flannery.
But he has a secret: he is also an IRA sniper who shoots British soldiers.
As Johnny's two lives move dangerously close to collision, he must make sense of both the world he lives in and the choices he has made, in this heart-stopping debut about love, inheritance and the power of redemption.

"[R]omance is the mad and wonderful thing that gives the novel its name, but it's not the emotion that drives the plot Mulholland's prose has all the elan of fine conversation after a couple of pints the final act is marvellous"
(Michelle Griffin, Canberra Times)
