Belletristik / Gegenwartsliteratur (ab 1945)
The daily adventures of the volcanic Aidan, told in the first person with humorous verve, transform into an intelligent portrait of that Ireland that, though not forgetting its wounds, wishes to begin hoping again, without violence and without prejudice. We are in Derry (Londonderry), Northern Ireland. It's the summer of 1994; three young painters decide to commemorate, with a beautiful mural, the anniversary of the famous battle between Catholics and Protestants that took place in 1969 among the streets of the Bogside district. Aidan, who at school is the worst one when it comes to arts subjects, would like to somehow weasel his way into participating in the enterprise, but he'll have to settle for a funny and poetic surrogate. In the meantime, he discovers that, in the small world that surrounds him, it is well worth the trouble to truly care for one another.
