The working class neighborhoods of Belfast are central to Robert McLiam Wilson`s new novel, Eureka Street. That`s the name of the street where Chuckie, the Protestant protagonist, lives with his mother. The narrator is Chuckie`s cynical Catholic friend Jake, who lives in Poetry Street, a name that hints at the book`s ambition.
The story that unfolds as these two friends criss cross the city is both a funny enjoyable read and a serious political satire on the poisonous politics of Northern Ireland.
Robert McLiam Wilson was born in Belfast in 1964. Ripley Bogle, his debut, won the Rooney Prize, the Hughes Prize, a Betty Trask Award and the Irish Book Awards. He has written two other novels - Manfred's Pain and Eureka Street - and is also the author of a non-fiction book, The Dispossessed. In 2003, he was named by Granta magazine as one of 20 Best of Young British Novelists.
