The Last of the High Kings

(1991)
A novel by

 
Set during the summer of punk in Howth, a small fishing town in North County Dublin, The Last of the High Kings is a coming-of-age comic novel that tells the story of 17-year-old Frankie Griffin as he tries to deal with his eccentric family, including his outrageous Republican mother and laid-back Bohemian father.
First published in 1991, New Island brings this Modern Irish Classic back to life.
The Last of the High Kings was made into a Hollywood movie starring Gabriel Byrne, Jared Leto, Stephen Rea and Christina Ricci in 1996.
'Ferdia Mac Anna has that gift so rare: the ability to write humour. And in this, his first novel, he turns it to good advantage ... a perceptive, funny and often quite touching novel' Irish Independent
