“Here’s my soul, why don’t you shit on it?”
― Lisa McInerney, The Glorious Heresies

 “Parents sat gloomy and still, like rows of turnips in a grocer’s box. Their little criminals sat with them, tapping LOLs on their phones, or milled in the yard outside stinking of Lynx and taut nonchalance. Solicitors strode in and out in a twist of slacks and briefcases.”
― Lisa McInerney, The Glorious Heresies

“His being too enveloped in opaque promise, choking the faculty with it. Eyes streaming and throats constricted with the noxious concentrate of Cork’s great post-millennial of hope. Oh God, that was it. Ryan was all tied up in nasty knots of his own smothering competence.”
― Lisa McInerney, The Glorious Heresies

One Final Bonus – Lisa McInerney Quote 

“Times were tough and the people were harsh and the clergy were cruel-cruel, and you know it! The most natural thing in the world is giving birth; you built your whole religion around it. And yet you poured pitch onto girls like me and sold us into slavery and took our humanity away from us twice, a third time, as often as you could. I was lucky, Father. I was only sent away. A decade earlier and where would I have been? I might have died in your asylums, me with the smart mouth. I killed one man but you would have killed me in the name of your god, wouldn’t you? How many did you kill? How many lives did you destroy with your morality and your Seal of Confession and your lies? Now. For the absolution. Once God knows you’re sorry he lets you off the hook, isn’t that right?

Me? Oh, Father. I know I’m sorry. What about you? Bless me Ireland for I have sinned. Go on, boy. No wonder you say infinitely God is brimming with the clemency, for how else would any of you bastards sleep at night?”
― Lisa McInerney, The Glorious Heresies
