But that was all before the story really begins. Emerald Germs of Ireland is, in essence, Pat McNab's post-matricide year. This is another great romp from the master of black comedy. 'Emerald Germs is an extraordinary confection. Melancholy, nasty, and extremely funny' Jane Shilling, Sunday Telegraph 'A mesmerising, disturbing and sometimes wildly funny book' Carolyn Hart, Marie Claire, Book of the MonthHide synopsis

Description:Signed by Author. Hardcover. First Edition. First Printing. 306...Signed by Author. Hardcover. First Edition. First Printing. 306 pages. As New in As New dust jacket. The author's seventh novel. The first appearance of the title in the United States. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. Published in a small and limited first print run as a hardcover original only. The First Edition is now scarce. One of the author's most brilliant, macabre, and dementedly funny works. "McCabe may well be the lodestone of Irish fiction" (New York Observer). An absolute "must-have" title for Patrick McCabe collectors. This copy is very prominently signed and dated (in the year of publication) in blue pen on the title page by the author: "March 14, 2001. Patrick McCabe". This title is now collectible. This is one of few signed copies of the First American Edition/First Printing still available online and has no flaws, a pristine beauty. A scarce signed copy thus. Finalist of the Booker Prize in 1992 for "The Butcher Boy" and in 1998 for "Breakfast On Pluto". One of the finest living novelists. A flawless copy.
