It’s Dublin in the 1980s. Rabbit is a self-made haulage magnate. But something’s wrong. He cuts a deal with his underling Keogh to help him find his lost moorings. The quest is hampered by his dead father Bat, Citizen Army volunteer and pawn shop assistant, bubbling up. The struggle between father and son, past and present, imagination and reality, spans Dublin.
An explosive exposition of the generation that led us to Boom and Bust. Written thirty years ago, ‘Bat the Father, Rabbit the Son’ is more pertinent than ever.
