‘A Little Birdie Told Me’ tells the story of Tommy Murphy, a precocious eleven-year-old Northern Irish lad, who enters 1991 feeling like he’s been promised the world. But when his brother Joe unexpectedly leaves home, he begins to feel as empty as that promise is slowly turning out to be. As the political unrest of the Troubles trundles on in the background while Tommy navigates the politics of the catholic council estate he lives on, things turn from bad to the unimaginable. His worries, such as making the jump from pants to boxers, are forced to the back of his mind as his life unravels like a dress with a loose stitch. His once banal concerns are flipped on their head and Tommy finds himself immersed in the inconceivable, yet he can barely tie his own shoelaces.

This darkly witty and emotional novel serves as a bitter reminder that bad luck has no age restriction.
