The Tenderloin bleeds its raw honesty onto every page – it is a truly felt and moving book’

Kevin Barry, author of City of Bohane

It’s 1995 and Evan has embarked on an adventure that will change his life – leaving home in Dublin for the rolling hills and fog-swept bays of San Francisco.

Between the Internet revolution and the rave culture of this liberal city, young naive Evan is completely clueless about how to succeed. But he’s determined to stumble on, looking for work, looking for love, and – ultimately – looking to define himself. Soon, though, the troubles of his past catch up with him, and everything begins to unravel.

‘Funny, sharp-eyed and deeply atmospheric’ Belinda McKeon, author of Solace

‘A bracingly honest, entertaining and sharply well-observed coming of age story’ Sunday Independent
