About Book

Noel Boyle needs a new life and he has come to Dublin to find it. He dreams of transformation and renewal. But once there he finds himself haunted, both by the spectre of a young girl found drowned in the Liffey, and by Fada, a street performer and poet who seems to lure him towards trouble. Ablaze with stories of lives lived and lost, The Swing of Things is an exhilarating and beautiful meditation on the idea of escape and what it is that keeps us tethered to the world.
