Boy Grows Up, Paperback (February 2007)
"Just A Boy" was praised for its unflinching and unself-pitying account of a neglected childhood at the hands of an abusive father and uncaring authorities. This work is an account of how the author used the success of "Just A Boy" to try and save his sister, and of his attempts to make sense of his past.
Just a Boy, Paperback (October 2004)
One October night in 1975, Richard, aged five, was alone with his sisters. Their mother didn't return home as she became the victim of a killer and from that moment their childhoods were destroyed. They lived a life without love or support, until one day in the late Nineties when Richard decided that no one was going to rescue their lives but him.
Ghost Letters, Paperback / softback (November 1994)» View all books by Richard McCann
Fiercely passionate and deeply elegiac, Richard McCann's Ghost Letters chronicles the intersection of grief and desire. These are poems of memory, but they are made of the body--the consoling body; the wounded body; the sexual body, both loved and unloved.
