Untitled Document

McCauley’s War is a fast-moving tale of life in wartime Derry as seen through the eyes of Dickie McCauley, a streetwise nine-year-old who dominates his friends and constantly outwits his elders.

Dickie’s father, emboldened by news reports of German Army actions, claims Hitler will soon push the British out of Ireland, but Dickie suspects these foolish dreams are merely drunken words.

Meanwhile, Dickie’s antics with his motley gang bring unwanted attention to the doorstep of his long-suffering mother. These innocent scrapes quickly tangle with much darker deeds and local politics leading to terrible consequences for the close-knit McCauley family.

A debut novel from Charlie Herron, McCauley’s War is a poignant and compelling story, told with an absorbing mix of humour, insight and affection.
