critical reviews

"Raises important, powerful issues, and holds them up to scrutiny."

"Do you know what it's like being a prisoner to something? How could you? You just sit home all day watching soaps and planning meals in your brand new kitchen... by the way, it don't look good for that getting finished any time soon."

The Naz

Plot Summary:

Nazareth House, an Irish children's home, is synonymous with cruelty, exploitation, and abuse. Now, years after his failed suicide attempt, one alumnus has become a wealthy manufacturer of computer hardware. He has tracked down some of his old classmates from Nazareth House to see if he can reconstruct the memories that made him jump off Tower Bridge in the first place. But can he convince the others to share their own stories of the horrors of the Naz? And does he really want to hear them?
