To a misfit kid, growing up on the other side of the tracks in a single-parent family and noticeably queer in an isolated part of the (pre-decriminalization) Irish countryside — an environment akin to the purgatorial villages conjured up from the dark depths of a Patrick McCabe (THE BUTCHER BOY, BREAKFAST ON PLUTO, WINTERWOOD) novel — […]
