With My Lazy Eye by Julia Kelly

One of the finest fiction debuts of recent times, With My Lazy Eye
tells the story of a myopic, muddle-headed little girl and her
relationship with her distant father. As she stumbles her way
through childhood and teenage years, her eyesight deteriorates and
her father becomes ever more elusive. Then a chance discovery
about her father’s past changes her life and her attitude towards
him forever. John Banville remarked that “‘Julia Kelly’s is surely the
freshest voice in Irish fiction since the wonderful early novels of
Edna O’Brien.”
