The Voyage of the DolphineBook - 2016
'Gentlemen?' Fitzmaurice's eyes gleamed and he revealed many teeth '? lace up your stoutest boots and pack your warmest underwear ? we're all off to the bloody Arctic!' It is Dublin in the spring of 1916: whilewar rages across Europe and rebellion threatens the Irish capital, three young College friends embark on a foolhardy seafaring mission to find the lost skeleton of an Irish giant. With mishaps, mischief, and a little romance, their voyage is a hilarious odyssey round the edges of history and into a curious, wonderful adventure that will change their lives forever. Ernest Shackleton meets P.G.Wodehouse in this heart-warming tale of three men in a ship (to say nothing of the dog, a foul-mouthed Scotsman and an iguana...) By the author of Jammy Dodger, nominated for the 2013 Desmond Elliott Prize for new fiction.
