Fathers Come First


Rosita Sweetman's first novel exploded onto the literary scene in 1974, selling over 60,000 copies within the decade. Now reissued as a modern Irish classic on the fortieth anniversary of its publication, with a fresh Afterword, it describes the sentimental education of a school-leaver abroad in the city, and is as fresh and relevant today as when it first appeared. It's the story of Liz, a girl wanting her father, losing her mother, wishing to be a lady, and learning to be a bitch in the sexual jungle of middle-class Dublin: a world of bedsits and bezzies, modelling and waitressing, flats, cocktail parties, and dreams of men.
