More About the Author

Paddy Kelly was born in Ireland and narrowly avoided being a farmer. A romantic accident caused him to move to Sweden where he remains to this day, now a huge fan of standing in line and fermented fish. To earn a crust, he programs time-wasting mobile games.

When not scribbling at his desk, Paddy dances Lindy Hop, Belly Dance and Charleston, goes for long walks where he invariably gets lost, and finds unexpected new ways to cook porridge. Other things that tickle his fancy include goth, airships, the 1920s and imperial porter.

Bonus fact 1: Paddy has, on several occasions, had his arm all the way inside a cow.
Bonus fact 2: Paddy has never lost a staring contest. Not once.

An amusing and captivating story about being foreign, young, and single in Stockholm. Having done just that myself, I wondered, both in admiration and in distaste about the situations these guys get into. Some of them gave me a very uncomfortable feeling, similar to what I feel watching the US version of the Office. That just makes it all the more interesting to see if and how they survive and at a few points I had to cover part of the screen to keep myself from skipping ahead because of suspense. A fun read for practically nothing!

Erotic Refugees was a fun book to read, even if it's about a couple of guys. Irish protagonists Eoin and Rob are likeable and real, as are all of Kelly's secondary characters. ER missed five stars by a hair's breath only because the plot could have been a bit stronger. But, overall, fantastic job. Hope Eoin and Rob pop up in a future novel. Paddy Kelly is one funny man and a jewel of a writer.

Why do men tend to be funny when being erotic? It charmingly ends with true love which is pretty special.

This is a great read. The setting is Stockholm and the characters comprise of Irsh guys and Swedish women. What a combination.
Stockholm is portrayed as a beautiful city. There are great observations on the subtle differences between the Irish and the Swedes and of course between men and women. Its all hooked together with a page turning tale of modern life with all its uncerainties, opportunities, heartbreaks and fun.
The title and and cover may seem cartoonish but its a humerous allusion to one Irish guys experiences of living in Sweden. It all makes sense in the end.
If you like Nick Hornby or Tony Parsons you'll love this.

I should state right away that I know the author. I know that might make me seem less trustworthy in leaving a good review and socially handicapped if I leave a bad one. Honestly, though, if I didn't like the book, I'd just stay away from saying anytning, so going throught the time and effort of writing this is in itself a good grade, however overdue this review may be.

I've read my fair share of relationship drama, some I've liked, some I haven't. This book falls in the former category for several reasons. First of all, it's very well written. The lanuage flows easily, and let the reader concentrate on the story instead of stumbling over unneccecary information.

It's easy to identify with the the main characters. They, as well as the people they meet, come across as quite ordinary, sometimes nice, sometimes less so. The absence of one-sided good or bad persons make the characters interesting, and even ex-partners get a fair description.

Because the characters are complex, they can be believed to do the things they do. They get ideas, get laid and get disappointed, just like the rest of us. The story takes quite a few unexpected turns and although not everything that happen may seem funny by the characters, it's described in a way that made me smile a lot while reading.

Being from Stockholm I also enjoyed the description of my city and it's inhabitants. I recommend this book to anyone who's ever been in love, been dumped, or had to dump someone.
