The Pig Did It

The Pig Did It Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A pig escapes from its pen and roots up the garden of Kitty McCloud, a bestselling novelist who "corrects" the classics. What the obstreperous little pig unearths is evidence of a possible transgression that the novel's three Irish characters--the plagiarizing Kitty, her blood-feud rival Kieran, and a sexy swineherd named Lolly--are convinced the other has probably benefited from.

How this hilarious mystery is resolved inspires both comic eloquence and a theatrically colorful canvas depicting the brooding Irish land and seascape.

Synopsis:

When a pig digs up bones from the past, the mayhem begins. A novel set in contemporary Ireland, written with an Irish lilt, and filled with indelible characters and sheer hilarity.
