About:

This fluidly written, erudite, comic novel deals with the deeply serious subject of the darker side of the vast urban landscape of New York, and how one might find a moral compass to navigate and deal with the types of carnage and bloodshed that constitutes the experience of the NYPD. This is an intelligent writer, with a feel for words, with a tremendous lyrical flow, a rich humanity, and a feel for his subject.

Colum McCann, IMPAC Dublin Literary Award winner, and author of Let the Great World Spin,

says of Cut and Run in the Bronx, “Extremely funny, smooth, and well written.”

Author Billy Barrett calls Cut and Run in the Bronx, “the funniest book since A Confederacy of Dunces.

The Seven TowersSeven Towers was set up as a not for profit company in 2006 by a group of friends who loved great literature and wanted to play a part in the cultural scene. They knew of a great many superb writers and poets, who, because of the size of the Irish Market, were not finding publishers and exposure to the public. Thus they began publishing and agenting books and setting up readings, and have continued to do so since then. Seven Towers is not supported by any grant or aid, and is run totally on the good will of those who help and promote our work. We strive to foster an atmosphere of collaboration and co operation among artists of many different genres and disciplines. We also strive to foster a strong international feel to our work, inviting poets from other continents to drop by and read with us and work with us. Not only this, but 7Towers runs readings in the US and in Britain, including the Last Wednesday Series, and the Chapters and Verse series. Seven Towers is immensely proud to be part of a flourishing Dublin Literary scene and sees a bright future for Irish and international Writing.
