This book is about a group of friends in modern Ireland who meet occasionally for drinks. It is about accident and emergency departments in hospitals, the social services, scams, the Internet, civil servants and sex. How did the hospital patient end up in a storeroom? Who is sending emails to friendsoftheconfederacy.com and siouxreservation.com and why? What happens when a man dressed as a woman visits a social welfare office? Where did the ritual of the "Last Pipe" originate? How do you get a car for nothing? Read "Postcards to America" and laugh yourself to sleep tonight.
