THE LAMMISTERS is a new novel by award-winning author Declan Burke.

"This bourbon-smooth riot of jazz-age excess, high satire and Wodehouse flamboyance is a pitch-perfect bullseye of comic brilliance." Irish Independent Books of the Year 2019

"This rapid-fire novel deserves a place on any bookshelf that grants asylum to PG Wodehouse, Flann O'Brien or Kyril Bonfiglioli." Eoin Colfer, Guardian Best Books of the Year 2019

"The funniest book of the year." Sunday Independent
