'Droll, shrewd and unafraid - a winning debut' Hilary Mantel, author of Wolf Hall

 

Naoise Dolan explodes onto the scene with Exciting Times, a slyly humorous and scorchingly smart modern love story about three cynics in Hong Kong

 

When you leave Ireland aged 22 to spend your parents' money, it's called a gap year.

When Ava leaves Ireland aged 22 to make her own money, she's not sure what to call it, but it involves:

 

- a badly-paid job in Hong Kong, teaching English grammar to rich children. 

 

- Julian, who likes to spend money on Ava and lets her move into his guest room.

 

- Edith, who Ava meets while Julian is out of town and actually listens to her when she talks. 

 

- money, love, cynicism, unspoken feelings and unlikely connections.

 

Exciting times ensue.
