Praise

Praise for Getting It in the Head

A New York Times Notable Book of the Year
Winner of the Rooney Prize for Irish Literature

“Funny, fantastical tales that trample inventively on the toes of sanctimonious news media, provincial pride and the 20th century itself.”
The New York Times Book Review

“Sharp as knives, mixing tongue-in-cheek bog Gothic with metaphysical flourishes and lashings of ultraviolence.”
The Guardian

“McCormack’s first collection of short stories ranges from the west of Ireland to New York to Purgatory . . . A helpless howl of protest that presages not only the end of the [twentieth] century but the end of civilisation itself.”
—Times Literary Supplement

“Remarkable, even at the most extreme moments.”
—The Irish Times


“There’s no denying McCormack’s knack for throwing a harsh light on some of life’s grimmer corners. Disturbing, audacious work.”
—Kirkus Reviews
