One night an 18-year-old Irish girl, recently arrived in London to attend drama school, meets an older man - a well-regarded actor in his own right. While she is naive and thrilled by life in the big city, he is haunted by more than a few demons, and the clamorous relationship that ensues risks undoing them both. A captivating story of passion and innocence, joy and discovery, set against the vibrant atmosphere of 1990s London over the course of a single year, The Lesser Bohemians glows with the eddies and anxieties of growing up, and the transformative intensity of a powerful new love.

I almost gave up on this after a couple of chapters because of its unusual style. I'm so glad I didn't. It's wonderfully written and beautifully read. In a lovely rythmic style, it tells the love story of two damaged people as they work out how to survive.

worth sticking with
OK so it takes a while to get used to the style. The amount of sex is quite incredible, but it actually is an extremely good book. I gave up on it with my first attempt quite early on as I found the style so odd. Since it is part of a course I'm doing and a fellow student said it's good when you get into it, I decided to give it another go. I'm glad I did. Once they stop copulating long enough to move into a storyline proper I was quite wrapped up in the book. The text does become a lot more conventional then anyway. Really enjoyed it.
