A Novel by Fifteen Irish Writers
A novel by

 
 
"I think he was dead before I shot him."

With these auspicious words begins a murder mystery so utterly unlike any other that it took fifteen of Ireland's finest writers (working well below their peak) to bring it to its unlikely conclusion. The plot involves a mad search for the only manuscript of an unpublished novel by James Joyce, and features a stellar cast—including a sadistic sergeant with the unlikely name of Andy Andrews and the unforgettable mob boss Mrs. Bloom, a woman "who had tried everything but drew the line at honesty." Raucous, raunchy, gratuitously violent and completely hilarious, Yeats Is Dead! is a diabolically entertaining mulligan stew of a novel. James Joyce would be proud.

The authors include Roddy Doyle, Frank McCourt, Joe O'Connor, Pauline McGlynn (of Father Ted), Hugo Hamilton, Marian Keyes, Conor McPherson and Anthony Cronin
