A Brave Man Dead is a novel about an Irish girl becoming a young woman.
The novel is narrated by Mary Devine through language very much her own.
Like all teenage narrated novels Mary tries to figure out what the hell is going on around, in and to her.
Of her many personal epiphanies she has recently become fully aware of the inadequate role her mother has played and plays in her short life.
Both she and her many siblings “lecture” her on how to live after the early death of her father.
Acceptance arrives by way of paternal paganism and in the end Mary decides what to do when tragedy hits home.
Release date: Summer 2019.
