Fective was the leading—arguably the only—figure in the Irish transgressive literature movement of the 1980s. Each of Fective’s many stories was the same in its essentials. A middle aged Garda officer is lured to a suburban Dublin house with a promise of a free fry up, and the possibility of something else hot and savoury, whereupon he is trapped in an airing cupboard with the immersion on, never to escape. After Fective’s death, a total of thirty-seven mummified bodies were recovered from the loft of her house in Coolock Village. Jacinta was a lovely girl all the same.
