I Am the Border, So I Am


Product Description
Product Details

About the Author

The Irish Border has been partitioning Ireland since the early 1920s. Since 1998 it has been lecturing the world on how to eradicate borders. It came out of semi-retirement in 2018 to be in pain in Brexit's arse by masquerading as the ridiculously successful Twitter account @BorderIrish. It lives and works on the border in Ireland. Obviously.


  • Telegraph's 'best British politics books to buy for Christmas'
  • Sunday Times's 'best humour books of 2019'
  • Financial Times' 'best audiobooks of 2019'
  • 'An insightful spotlight on the vagaries, complexities and historical importance of perhaps the most intractable and misunderstood aspects of Brexit. Let's face it, Christmas is not a time to wrestle with regulatory alignment, so you might as well follow in Spike Milligan's footsteps and go the full Puckoon.' - Financial Times
  • 'A very funny, humane and politically astute chronicle of a tragicomic episode ... a brilliant act of ventriloquism.' - Fintan O'Toole, Irish Times
  • 'A much-needed, hilarious and insightful antidote to the daily Brexiton depression.' - Joe Duffy, RTE Radio 1
  • 'The account, and thus this collection, serves up waggish satire in the tradition of Myles na gCopaleen, with regular doses of Beckettian absurdism and a touch of Spike Milligan-style slapstick, made contemporary with coinages such as "bordersplaining". It also offers occasional side helpings of poignant reflection and calls for statecraft.' - The Times
  • 'It does get you in the solar plexus, it does remind you that this is serious. ... There is a lovely final image in the last chapter, where he or she says, "I know I've messed around. This time this Brexit feels like when your favourite vase is falling from the table, and you're watching it as it gets closer to the floor, maybe it won't break, maybe you'll catch it." ... I think this is for everybody. It's selling well, and I'm not surprised. It's a very handsomely produced book - the paper is beautiful - so it's a fantastic present for people who like their current affairs and those who don't like their current affairs.' - Arena, RTE Radio 1
