'I've never quite read anything like it… funny, moving and terrifying all at once' Rick O'Shea
Struggling to cope with a tragic loss, Denis Murphy has learned to live a bit differently. Both his friends are used to it — the only problem is his monstrous housemates.
When his enigmatic ex-girlfriend comes back into his life, she threatens to shatter the finely crafted world around him.
As Denis begins to re-emerge from his sheltered existence and rediscover the person he used to be, things turn nasty, and he is forced to confront the demons that share not only his house, but also his head.
What Reviewers and Readers Say:
'One part The Rosie Project, one part personal Heart Of Darkness, one part Stephen King — I've never quite read anything like it…There are many novels around in recent years with characters struggling with their mental health but none that I've read as original as this. Me, Myself And Them incredibly manages to be funny, moving and terrifying all at once… I started thinking it was a story of the absurd but welled up by the time I got to the end. Dan Mooney has something quite unique here in a story of one man's journey through (literally) his own imprisoning demons of mental health. Give it a try. I hope it finds the audience it deserves.' Rick O'Shea
'As witty as it is unsettlingI missed my train stop, twice, because of this book… Dan Mooney has crafted a story of the strongest kind, that is, one that holds the power to prompt thought and dialogue. And this is a story much needed.' The BookBag

'Remarkable, fascinating and unnerving. Dan warmly invites us in and shows us to our comfy seat as he introduces us to a shocking post-trauma world where everything and nothing makes perfect sense.' Annie West

    This is undeniably one of the best books I have ever read. The way Denis' mental illness was represented was very vivid, one could feel almost as if they were in his shoes (metaphorical shoes that is 😉)
    His battles with his compulsions and the monsters was difficult to read, but in a good way.
    I hope more people will get to read this book one day.

    after a moment or two to calm himself, he hugged her back. He felt her arms tighten as she sobbed very gently for her poor, sick child. He gritted his teeth and endured it. Grateful that, for once, he could give her back something she had offered for seven years. A small

    “I want the guilt to be gone, and the grief. I’m so tired of holding on to it.”

    Holding on to it is what made you sick in the first place, but you should always keep just a little bit, to remind you of what you’ve lost, only just a tiny little bit. These things, tragic though they may be, are part of life. They happen.

    Definitely one of my most favourite lines in this book
