My books

My latest book is Pretend We’re Dead, a novel about a group of slackers hanging out and killing time in mid-1990s Cork City. Think a book version of a Richard Linklater movie, or indeed a book version of a Douglas Coupland book. 

Other novels include !!SuperHyperMEGASTAR!! (2020), a comedy which crosses Cyrano de Bergerac and The X-Factor; Devil Hang Over Me, a tight, menacing psychological thriller (2020); Red Raven, a Young Adult urban fantasy (2020); YA mystery Shiver the Whole Night Through (2014); The Polka Dot Girl (2013), a noir-style detective story with a twist (all the characters are women); and Even Flow, a thriller about a gang of feminist vigilantes (2012). In 2007 I brought out a non-fiction book called GAA Confidential, and released a comic novel as an e-book (Cold! Steel! Justice!!!) in 2011. My books have received excellent reviews, which you can read on the right-hand side of my homepage.

I’ve also written a literary novel about “the meaning of it all” and a very literary collection of short stories on a common theme of movement. I’ll be making these available on Kindle over the next little while. 

See more on each by hovering on the “My Books” link above, and using the drop-down menu. Any books not already published are available for submission to publishers (including those released on Kindle by myself). Email darraghmcmanus (AT) yahoo (DOT) com
