Structo Magazine Review

Read the full review from the excellent Structo literary magazine here.

“Paul McVeigh’s ambitious debut pits the half-term struggles of a pre-adolescent boy in the tempestuous run-up to his first day of ‘Big School’, against the explosive, sectarian world of Belfast’s Ardoyne during The Troubles… The Good Son delivers a real sense of a damaged child within a broken family constrained by his society, while also presenting a refreshing portrait of the troubles through the eyes of one of the most beguiling and endearing narrators I have encountered in a long time. McVeigh and The Good Son are destined for prizes.”
