The novel charts a year in the life of English teacher, Cian O’Dwyer, who “ends up” in Lisbon, after escaping from a romantic failure in Dublin.
It also provides a wry and humorous look at the world of English language teaching. Cian works in The London School, where all is not as it seems on the surface.
The author himself worked as an English teacher in Lisbon in the 1990s, and so the novel – although fiction – is informed by his own experiences of the city. Lorcan McNamee currently lives in the west of Ireland, where he is a language teacher.
The book is already available at Bookshop Bivar if you like to get your copy in advance.
