Big Billy Brennan has suffered the greatest tragedy a parent can know, he has just lost his son. His marriage is a partnership in name alone and at nearly 30 stone, Billy is also obese. So, Billy decides to take on the two things weighing him down - his grief, and his fat - and in doing so he's going to try to stop the terrible plague of suicide that is haunting the youth of Ireland.

Professional reviews

"A powerful debut about an obese man, and his struggle to lose weight while coming to terms with the death of his son, written by award-winning short-story writer Ethel Rohan. “Ethel Rohan shows herself to be one of those rare, courageous writers who dare to take on the 'ordinary' and show just how extraordinary it really is. A brave and moving book.” JOHN BANVILLE “Poignant and inspiring.” EOWYN IVEY, author of The Snow Child"
