TFICTION Dancing with the Tsars
HIS is the 18th book from the best rugby player Ireland never had, Ross O’carroll Kelly.

Both he, the “goys” and the books have moved on since, with each new novel being an almost impossible combination of hilarity, social satire and a barometer of contemporary life in Ireland.
Dancing with the Tsars is very much focused on Ross and his immediate family. He and Sorcha have split up. Again. They continue to share the family home so Sorcha can pursue her political career in the Seanad and Ross can care for
