Book Launch: Juggling with Turnips by Karl MacDermott


Wednesday 13 June 2018

6.30pm–8.30pm | All welcome

All are welcome to the launch of Karl MacDermott's Juggling with Turnips. 

An overweight Mafioso wants to dance like Michael Flatley. A comedian hires an unreliable heckler to disrupt the high profile gig of a rival. A young boy developes a bizarre addiction to communion wafers. Just some of the stories from Juggling With Turnips. A book with very little juggling. And no turnips. Juggling With Turnips contains twenty-three stories of short comic fiction. And stuff in-between about what’s going on with the writer of the stories. As he tries to the find someone to read the stories. Just one person. Anyone. Is that too much to ask? It also contains some extracts from his vast and pointless archive. Seven poems. And one reference to Harry Dean Stanton.

“Fiercely funny stories of love, angst, dreams, delusions and failure but also a collection that is sharp, honest, peculiarly Irish and true.” Ardal O'Hanlon
