We’ll All Be Burnt in Our Beds Some Night by Joel Thomas Hynes

beds

This novel is narrated by the main character, Johnny, in his unique vernacular. The story begins with him waiting to go to trial for allegedly assaulting his girlfriend, Madonna, with a teapot. Johnny is very unlikeable. But that makes his odyssey to leave behind crime both darkly funny and stirring at times.
