The Butcher Boy

The Butcher Boy is the story of Francie Brady, a child in 1960s Ireland who grows up violent, detached, yet somehow still child-like.  Things begin to fall apart after his mother’s suicide - when he is consumed with fury and commits a horrible crime. Committed to an asylum, it is only here that he finally achieves peace.
