Me & Five Guys


Me & Five Guys is a vivid, deeply personal novel by award-winning screenwriter Trish Doolan. We follow Frankie and her four older brothers as they deal with their father’s repeated drunken bouts of temper and many other tragedies that fate sends their way. But no matter what happens to them, they stick together through thick and thin. They play and laugh together; they fight together; they betray, wound, and mistreat one another; they miscommunicate or don’t communicate at all.

Me & Five Guys is a rough-and-tumble story, where love is messy, and the characters frequently work things out by wrestling or punching or smashing something to pieces.  But ultimately, each family member knows that they are a part of this organic unit, for better or worse, and each embraces it in his or her own way.
