Abstract

This project involved researching and writing four chapters, plus prologue, of a novel provisionally entitled Skelper. The novel is told through the voice of an almost-eighty-year-old Irish former boxer. The completed chapters move backward and forward in time from present-day Paris and L'Hôpital St-Louis to the Irish midlands in the post-WWII period and on into the amateur boxing clubs of 1950s London. The journey is both geographical and retrospective, as the narrator recounts a sequence of events that has brought him to Paris. The completed chapters are later chapters in the novel, to be followed by two or three more.
