Overview

A raucous mix of double crosses, brothels, triple crosses, and cocktail recipes, Breakfast at Cannibal Joe's is a dark, twisted, and picaresque tale, a transgressive black comedy like no other. Joe Chambers is a CIA operative working in Dublin. Assigned to an agency-backed publishing house, his problems include, but are not limited to, errant MI6 agents, a Francoist dwarf, insane profit-making schemes, and a tapeworm named Steve. Utterly reprehensible, he is the perfect guide to this bizarre and repulsive journey into Dublin's gutters. Jay Spencer Green presents a twisted and exaggerated - but wholly recognizable - vision of a town where cat's cheese salad and a dubious pork/human hybrid meat share the menu, where mass canine culling is a hobby for the masses, and where clowns, chuggers, and carneys form the heart of the resistance. It is a Dublin of no redemption, a place where all bets are off.Breakfast at Cannibal Joe's was voted Best Indie Comedy of 2015 and was the winner of the 2015 Lord of the Book Covers award.

American Joe Chambers is a CIA operative, working in Dublin for an agency fronted publishing house, Whetstone. He was sent there to work after he messed up big time, and this was his punishment, of sorts. Breakfast at Cannibal Joe’s is a uniquely dark comedy story, which has many bizarre occurrences happen throughout the book. It is mainly via those occurrences that the humour is produced. Unfortunately for me, I just couldn’t get into it. The book sounded a lot of fun, and I really did want to delve into it, basically to have a laugh, but I found it hard to grasp. I really can appreciate the skill involved in creating such a story, and linking it altogether with humour even if it was beyond my understanding. I was intrigued enough though that I wanted to persevere and finish the book, which luckily I did. I believe that this book would appeal to people who like strange, funny, dark humour, which I have realised, I must not! :-(
