Crazy For You, Irish actor releases novel inspired by Madonna


A delicious romping stomping rollercoaster of a tale – I devoured it in one sitting. It’s witty and charming and very, very funny.  With unforgettable characters, glorious backdrops and a piercing portrayal of growing up gay in an Ireland that was very different to today, you’ll be… cough… crazy for it. – Esther McCarthy, Irish Examiner

A rollercoaster ride of highs and lows that you won’t want to get off … will leave you open mouthed and satisfyingly unsettledÁine Toner, Woman’s Way

Ros na Rún Actor, Domhnall O’Donoghue latest novel Crazy For You, was inspired by his love of Madonna and his own life experiences. In this wickedly funny read, Clooney Coyle promises Vonnie Gallagher they’ll be friends for life – he has no idea what he’s letting himself in for. The lonely and eccentric Vonnie quickly becomes obsessed with the kind-hearted but insecure actor, and her misguided crush soon develops into something much more sinister, which leaves Clooney’s career in tatters. 

But when fate takes a strange turn and elevates the pair into an overnight celebrity couple, Clooney must decide whether to embrace the fame he has longed for since childhood or end the ridiculous charade before Vonnie’s jealous – and murderous – inclinations spiral out of control.
