Cartoon City by Ferdia MacAnna

ISBN:  978-1-9999075-7-0  /  278pp

For a classic urban sass novel, cult hit Cartoon City by Ferdia MacAnna is hard to beat, with its wild cast of misfits, rebels and Dublin denizens.
Anti-hero Myles seeks an out from his journo work. When he falls for the redoubtable Mia, however, he is drawn into the heart of Dublin’s underworld with some alarming – and hilarious – consequences.

Ferdia MacAnna’s career has brought him from comic writing to memoir, literary fiction and film direction.  This is his third novel, originally published by Headline in 2000. It romps through a comic tale of crime, passion and surreal humour at breakneck pace. With an eye for characterisation and a flair for Dublinese, it pogos  along like Flann O’Brien with rock’n’roll.

The second edition of Cartoon City will be out in 2020 from 451 Editions – expected to crash land on bookshop shelves, online and in electronic format just in time for its twentieth anniversary.
