Irish Book Awards

Back from the Brink by Paul McGrath

Paul McGrath is Ireland’s best loved sportsman and also its least
understood. Quite apart from his all too public struggle with
alcoholism, the story runs through the surreal highs and calamitous
lows of a life lived habitually on the edge of chaos. It is not just a
football story. It is an extraordinary human story that is certain to
surprise with its candour. Here, the guilt, fear and self-loathing are all
laid bare in a story fired with hope and determination for the
future. It may well be the most candid sports book ever written.
