It's 2008, and the Celtic Tiger has left devastation in its wake. For Hart and Cormac Doharty life continues as normal - at least at first. But when their father falls ill, the boys face a devastating choice. Their family, and their community, are in crisis, and there's nothing more dangerous than two men with nothing to lose.
This bold, razor-sharp take on the consequences of one life-changing decision fizzes with the voice of rural Ireland. By turns outrageous, hilarious and dark, this is an unmissable snapshot of a family, and a nation, that finds itself suddenly unmoored. The Wild Laughter cements Caoilinn Hughes's position as one of Ireland's most audacious and talented young writers.
