About the Author

Kevin Stevens grew up in Great Falls, Montana. His American father and devoutly Catholic mother relocated their family to Ireland in 1972 and Kevin studied English in UCD alongside Frank McGuinness and Colm Toibin amongst others. Later, he spent 10 years in Boston working in publishing and also wrote a non-fiction title, The Cops Are Robbers, which sold 20,000 copies. He started writing fiction in the late 90's and Simon and Schuster published The Rizzoli Contract, followed by Song for Katya. One of his children's books The Powers was the Dublin UNESCO City of Literature City-wide Reading Project for children in 2014. Kevin has also written for The Irish Times and for Journal of Music in Ireland. He is a leading contributor to the Dublin Review of Books, published online at He divides his time between Boston and Dublin.


'I loved this book. Tender, intelligent, unflinching.' - The Irish Times; 'An utterly beautiful novel about growing up male and Muslim in modern America.' - Siobhan Parkinson; 'Gripping, engaging and beautifully told' - Dublin Review of Books; 'What Stevens excels in are the descriptions of Tariq's adolescent disquietude. And how universal a feeling is that? Not only is this a teenage circumstance but one that anyone who has gone through a crisis in any stage of life is sure to recognise, relate to and appreciate reading about when it's written this well.' - Irish Independent; 'I loved this book. Its tender, intelligent interrogation of male adolescent desperation is unflinching, as is its take on other big subjects: school bullying, what it's like to be the only son of Iraqi Muslim migrants living and working in the US, religion, post-traumatic stress disorder, the contested limits of parental control, jazz and sex, with the sex - praise the Lord - so delicately portrayed that the young people retain their dignity.' - The Irish Times (Rosita Sweetman)
