Fathers Come First

by Rosita Sweetman - £7.99  The Lilliput Press Ltd (2014)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781843516347 | ISBN 10: 1843516349

Rosita Sweetman's Fathers Come First is a coming-of-age classic set against a Dublin-city backdrop. Elizabeth is both gauche and perspicacious, walking the edge of her stereotypes while hobbled by the pressures of acceptance - social, physical and sexual. In a world informed by a Catholic upbringing, she wonders whether her indiscretions belong in the letterbox or the confession box.
 
Curious, unflinching and disarmingly honest, teenager turned twenty-something Lizzie speaks to the changes and continuities in Irish society across forty years. It is a novel as relevant today as when it was first published.
