It's a small town, somewhere, anywhere. Saturday nights and the stoned kids seek oblivion in joyrides, gang-fights, ecstasy and cheap hash. And this small town is seething with psychosis. In the woods, the body of little Kathleen Keegan is found - violated, brutally murdered. Is local madman White Mickey the killer? Stephen and Charlie. Twins trapped in an obsessive bind with each other. Isobel. Sad, beautiful, doomed. Now Kathleen's death is about to change their world forever, taking them on a voyage of dangerous sex, incest, suicide, and bloody revenge. Dispassion is an unforgettable roller-coaster ride into the nameless, shapeless terror of twenty-first century suburbia. Like Irvine Welch and Jim Carroll, Jarlath Gregory's prose is a brutally potent echo of the alienation and despair of a lost, disconnected generation. It's a small town, somewhere, anywhere. A place where innocence falls victim to the darkness. And it just might be your town.
