About this deal

After he is committed to a reform school, Juno moves out and becomes a street walker, sex worker, wandering aimlessly in a Dublin that seems to be out of a Dickens and Joyce novel, its image at odds with anything green or beautiful that Ireland seems to offer. I may not have loved Juno Loves Legs as much as I should have, maybe, but I’ll bet that there is someone out there who might. Thanks to NetGalley, Dreamscape Publishing, and the author, Geary, for this advanced copy, which I wholeheartedly loved and will be pondering long after my next read.

The two find their way from the backstreets and city’s pubs to its underground parties and squats, where, on the verge of adulthood, they find a breathing space to begin their real lives.

This story begins in a small Irish village where Juno and Legs live, where Juno’s father is a mostly useless alcoholic, and her mother is a seamstress who creates lovely gowns and more, but her clients rarely pay. In een toegankelijke, nietsontziende en beschouwende stijl laat de auteur je kennismaken met zijn complexe personages en met de ruige, moeilijke en regelmatig hartverscheurende omstandigheden waarin zij moeten opgroeien.

How a 50-year-old man can seemingly effortlessly, and in beautifully rendered prose, capture the voice of a 12-year-old girl is nothing less than astounding. Thank God there were a few "thems" that offered islands of kindness along the way; a little sun, a bit of water to parched foliage, some fertilizing love; those who could see past the outside thorns to the delicacy beneath.We are experiencing delays with deliveries to many countries, but in most cases local services have now resumed.
