Meehall is back, with more confessions of youthful indiscretions. The Trouble With Meehall, Michael’s second volume of memoirs, is set on the Southwest Side of Chicago in the 1960s and... More > ‘70s. These thirteen stories trace a life in progress from youth to adolescence to the brink of adulthood. But even better, they’re also a lot of fun.

Michael Carroll’s new book takes us from the days of childhood to the beginning of the end of innocence, yet with a quiet, sly humor to take the edge off and remind us that after all is said and done, life is still good. So, read The Trouble With Meehall...a wee drop ‘twill be good for your heart, as feisty old Aunt Lillian from Limerick would say.< Less

A hard-hitting novel following two months in the life of 14 year old Lisa as she runs away from home and learns to survive on the streets. Second edition of this critically acclaimed novel first... More > published in 2008. 'Extremely well-written. The narrative voice is particularly strong and supple, conveying both Lisa's teenage defiance and her immense vulnerability.'

Laura Canning's portrayal of the forgotten and misunderstood youth of today is vivid and shocking. It's a page-turner and an eye-opener. It is fresh and original and speaks for the disenchanted voice of a generation much like Catcher in the Rye would have done to the youth of the 50s.' '...destined for great things, one of those "important" novels that critics sometimes harp on about.'< Less
