The Blood Miracles

“Rhis, like so many of Ryan Cusack’s fuck-ups, begins with ecstasy.” So begins the second novel from the author of the hugely successful début The Glorious Heresies, which scooped both the Baileys Women's Prize for Fiction and the Desmond Elliott prize. “A glorious, foul-mouthed, fizzing new talent,” said the Sunday Times at the time of her first, and McInerney’s many fans will be pleased to hear her follow up revolves around the further misadventures of 20-year-old Ryan in Cork city as he negotiates his unhappy girlfriend Karine, his drug-dealing boss Dan Kane and, of course, the aforementioned shipment of ecstasy pills.
