A raucous mix of double crosses, brothels, triple crosses, and cocktail recipes, Breakfast at Cannibal Joe's is a dark, twisted, and picaresque tale, a transgressive black comedy like no other.
Joe Chambers is a CIA operative working in Dublin. Assigned to an agency-fronted publishing house, his problems include, but are not limited to, errant MI6 agents, a Francoist dwarf, insane profit-making schemes, and a tapeworm named Steve. Utterly reprehensible, he is the perfect guide to this bizarre and repulsive journey into Dublin's gutters.
Jay Spencer Green presents a twisted and exaggerated - but wholly recognizable - vision of Dublin, a place where cat's cheese salad and a dubious pork/human hybrid meat share the menu, where mass canine culling is a hobby for the masses, and where clowns, chuggers, and carneys form the heart of the resistance. It is a Dublin of no redemption.
Winner of the 2015 Lord of the Book Covers award. Voted No. 6 in the 50 Top Indie Books of 2015.
BIOGRAPHY Born in the UK but resident in Ireland for more than two decades, Jay Spencer Green has worked as a laborer, hotel dishwasher, truck driver, factory foreman, college lecturer, stand-up comic, court coverer at Wimbledon, stagehand for the Chippendales, correspondence course tutor, and academic database editor. The consequent cornucopia of negative work experiences has provided enough trauma for several novels, which are now being stealthily introduced to the reading public like a slow-release poison. The first, Breakfast at Cannibal Joe's, was voted one of the top ten indie books of 2015 and won the Lord of the Book Covers award. Lisa McInerney, winner of the Bailey's Prize for Fiction, described it as "Savagely funny and deftly anarchic." Ivy Feckett is Looking for Love: A Birmingham Romance was voted Best Indie Comedy of 2016. Green's third novel, Fowl Play, won Best Indie Comedy of 2018. He is currently at work on Manuel Estimulo's Fascist Book of Everything, a comedy about Brexit set in the Canary Islands.
