Skippy Dies

Novel by Paul Murray. Adapted for the screen by Stuart Carolan. "Do you think parents pay ten grand a year so their kids can learn about futility and anarchy? Paul Murray's Booker long-listed novel is an epic black comedy of love, death and growing up in a very dysfunctional modern Ireland. Set against the backdrop of a prestigious private Catholic boys' school, the book begins with the death of its eponymous hero during a doughnut eating competition and then goes back to trace the complex tangle of relationships and events that lead up to the tragedy.
