Overview

Tony is 15 and he's in trouble. It's not that he secretly reads James Joyce and his schoolmates would kill him if they found out what a freak he was. It's not that he's trying to write his story and can't find the right voice. It's that his girlfriend, Janine, is pregnant, and in a couple of months everyone will know and his life will be over. So he's decided to end it himself.

Set in 1981, in the aftershock of Joy Division singer Ian Curtis's suicide, The Girl with the Bomb Inside is a 16,000-word novelette that explodes with all the filth and fury of a three-minute punk song, hammering at the bars of its teenage prison with a foul-mouthed and brutal depiction of a schoolyard pregnancy.

This Smashwords edition also features a free sample chapter from Andy Conway's next novel, postmodern Hungarian campus romance, Train Can't Bring Me Home.
