Milkman

“The unnamed protagonist of MILKMAN stands out for the wrong reasons. She reads while walking, for one; she's been taking French night classes downtown; and she goes running by herself through the streets of her unnamed city under the control of an unnamed government and filled with the violence of an unnamed civil conflict. Then, when a local paramilitary named Milkman begins pursuing her, she suddenly becomes "interesting," the last thing she ever wanted to be. Set amidst the Troubles in Northern Ireland, MILKMAN is a relentless, incisive, claustrophobic, and darkly funny book about the power of gossip, rumor, insinuation, and how to carry on in a community where the wrong flag, the wrong religion, or even a sunset can be subversive and dangerous. Because MILKMAN is written in such a breathless torrent of language, the audiobook and its reader (with her fabulous Irish accent) taps into the conversational and emotional cadence of its narrator so well I couldn't stop listening.”
