Himself – Jess Kidd (Audiobook) – 15.06.20

Another lovely Jess Kidd audiobook with a gorgeous Irish narrator. Like other Jess Kidd books there’s magical realism as the main character Mahony (with emphasis on Ma and the middle consonant sounding like you’re clearing your throat) constantly seeing and being able to communicate with dead people. He recieves a letter with a clue to the mystery of what happened to his young mother who ‘abandoned’ him to an orphanage shortly after his birth and he returns to the small Irish town where she lived to try to uncover the truth. Some of the town’s folk try to help him, but many close ranks and try to intimidate him out of town. I loved the book.
