Jarred McGinnis: Wake-up Call

A truly uplifting emotional journey; a tender, wise, brutally funny novel.’ So says the Guardian about The Coward, Jarred McGinnis’s autobiographical debut. After an accident leaves Jarred, the book’s narrator, in a wheelchair he is forced to return to the father he hasn’t spoken to for ten years. Add in a slew of vices and the fact that strangers now treat him like he’s an idiot, and it’s a recipe for self-destruction. How can he stop himself careering out of control? McGinnis joins us to share his story and how he fictionalised his path to change.
