Our fiction debut for March is Future Fish by Conor Sneyd, a deliciously daft caper about the madness of the modern world. If you’ve ever hated going into the office, this could be the novel for you.

Sacked from his first job in Dublin, Mark McGuire arrives in the dismal town of Ashcross to take up a new role as customer service assistant for Ireland’s second-biggest pet food brand, WellCat. From his initial impressions, it’s a toss-up whether he’ll die of misery or boredom. But he couldn’t be more wrong.

For a start, the improbably cute receptionist, Kevin, seems willing to audition as the man of Mark’s dreams. There’s also the launch of a hush-hush new product, Future Fish. Not to mention the ragtag band of exorcists, alien-hunters and animal rights activists, all convinced WellCat is up to no good. Why are these crackpots so keen on getting close to Mark? And will their schemes ruin his career prospects?

In this Irish animal rights comedy with a gay twist, Conor Sneyd perfectly captures the powerlessness of low-rung office life as well as the seductive zealotry of our times. Saga Magazine calls it ‘this endearingly daft and strangely compelling caper’. Order your copy here.
