About Book

LONGLISTED FOR THE BAILEY'S WOMEN'S PRIZE FOR FICTION 2017
SHORTLISTED FOR THE GOLDSMITHS PRIZE 2016
SHORTLISTED FOR THE BORD GAIS IRISH NOVEL OF THE YEAR 2016

From the writer of one of the most memorable debuts of recent years.

An eighteen-year-old Irish girl arrives in London to study drama and falls violently in love with an older actor. This older man has a disturbing past that the young girl is unprepared for. The young girl has a troubling past of her own. This is her story and their story.

The Lesser Bohemians is about sexual passion. It is about innocence and the loss of it. At once epic and exquisitely intimate, it is a celebration of the dark and the light in love.
