Description

A raucous mix of double crosses, brothels, triple crosses, and cocktail recipes, Breakfast at Cannibal Joe's is a dark, twisted, and picaresque tale, a transgressive black comedy like no other.Joe Chambers is a CIA operative working in Dublin. Assigned to an agency-fronted publishing house, his problems include, but are not limited to, errant MI6 agents, a Francoist dwarf, insane profit-making schemes, and a tapeworm named Steve. Utterly reprehensible, he is the perfect guide to this bizarre and repulsive journey into Dublin's gutters.Jay Spencer Green presents a twisted and exaggerated - but wholly recognizable - vision of a town where cat's cheese salad and a dubious pork/human hybrid meat share the menu, where mass canine culling is a hobby for the masses, and where clowns, chuggers, and carneys form the heart of the resistance. It is a Dublin of no redemption, a place where all bets are off.Breakfast at Cannibal Joe's was voted Best Indie Comedy of 2015 and was the winner of the 2015 Lord of the Book Covers award.
