The Great Pint-Pulling Olympiad
by Roger Boylan
Roger Boylan's second novel The Great Pint-Pulling Olympiad continues the uproarious saga of the hapless inhabitants of Killoyle, through the frenetic week of the Pint-Pulling Olympiad. "With a wink and a nudge, Boylan's pyrotechnic prose brings to life Ireland at its manic extremes, proving the author a dazzling and distinctive talent in American fiction." As richly captivating as its predecessor, The Great Pint-Pulling Olympiad is witty and erudite and comes complete with the deftly crafted clever details and footnotes. If you have been searching for a book that is both hilarious and literary, you will definitely find it here.
