Puckoon by Spike Milligan

About the book

It’s 1924 and the Boundary Commission is deciding on the new line between Northern Ireland and the Irish Republic. With much pushing and shoving, the border finds it’s way down the middle of Puckoon, dividing house from outhouse, man from wife, and pub chairs from bars. Something must be done!

Reviewed by Everton Reading Group:

50/50 split of liked and really enjoyed or conversely couldn’t get into the humour and Irish connections. ‘Bog’ standard laughter with some memorable passages such as the 2sq feet in the pub in opposite County. For those who like it, it stands the test of time. Best read aloud!

Star rating: **
