A novel in dramatic form. Set in small-town Ireland, The Barbarians tells the story of Frank Moran, Z-movie actor, returned home for his father's funeral. Staying on to settle his father's estate, Frank tries to reconnect with some old friends, but discovers some old rivalries. After a one-night-stand with the wrong woman, Frank begins trying to redeem himself, in his own eyes, but he has already set in motion the events that will lead to his murder.
