See Me Jimmy by Brian Lyons
A brutal and moving tale of a white working class man’s journey through life. From a childhood steeped in racism, sexism and class oppression, Jimmy is propelled into an adult world that offers fresh hope but new demons too. A thoroughly gripping story which is both outrageously funny and terrifically moving.

Confessions by James Mannion
In a sleepy rural village, Sarah Jameson and her daughter Grace lead simple lives - church, A Levels and visits from the vicar. Following an upsetting encounter with a local man, Sarah appeals to God for revenge, dismissing her pettiness as a momentary lapse. But when the man burns to death hours later, she is forced to wonder: is divine retribution so swift? Or is something more sinister at work?
