Originally published in Irish Gaelic, Is Stacey Pregnant? is a 21st century rebirth of Orwell’s famous Animal Farm pigs. Mac Síomóin’s porkies preside over a brave new world of popular powerlessness. Celebrity gossip, inane talk shows and, above all, the death of meaningful communication, combine in an apocalyptic vision of Irish society, trundling along in reverse gear towards a destination that is as unconventional as it is unexpected. Darkly humorous and provocative, its cold satirical eye exposes the murky machinations of the political class. Is Stacey Pregnant? is the definitive cathartic send-up of Ireland ’s Post-Celtic Tiger hangover.
