Scandalous Narratives of Contemporary Ireland. Back to the Gaff is a book by first time author John P Brady, which describes the excessive and outrageous nature of Irish night life. Meet an array of eccentric individuals who populate the bars of Dublin, living lives of decadence and abandon. Their frolics inevitably lead to a trip ‘back to the gaff,’ which in Dublin-speak means gravitating towards someone’s place of residence where the depravity continues.Many of the characters are figures who prop up some of the city centre bars and inhabit a parallel universe in which they never have a normal night out. The mundane is their enemy which they strike out against at every opportunity, escaping into a world of vice, where sex is casual and drugs are ubiquitous.'Brady's writing renews the reconciliation between introspection and action.'Shazia Hafiz Ramji, Editor Zouch Magazine'Keen, witty observations of ordinary people. John P Brady has a funny twist on life'Sam North - Editor of Hackwriters Magazine‘…like a young Jack Kerouac…’Alice Walsh - Former editor of The Bohemyth

Brady introduces us to many eccentric people and does a good job of selling Dublin as a city.
This is an excellent read that I would recommend to all- it has a wonderful mix of character, style, and atmosphere that is irresistible.
