Twist and Shout (1983)

“I know this skiffer in a bedsitter in Rathmines, so I went down there. There’s a lot of bedsitters down there, you know. The door was open so I went in. It was very dark – couldn’t see a thing. She wasn’t in so I went to sleep. When I woke up there was a policeman’s uniform hanging on the end of the bed and two pairs of motorbike gauntlets on the floor.”

‘‘Neither Avril nor myself can speak much German. We did a lot of pointing. We had trouble with the kilos. Worst of all, however, was buying the minced meat. Minced meat is not always on display in German butcher shops. They mince while you wait. It is very hard to mime minced meat.’’

Very alive and very funny, with a strong sense of irony. It’s also very relevant. IN DUBLIN

I now think that we may have a new writer of real creativity in Mr Davison IRISH INDEPENDENT
