This novel imagines a post Celtic Tiger Ireland in the year 2517 in which human beings have colonised the solar system, Ireland is a province of the Euroreich, Dublin is under water and Mullingar is the capital city. The Professor Siobhán Chan, the leading Irish-language scholar of her day and the linguist, Dr. Maolshechlainn Krumpf embark on a study to understand the Ireland created by the Celtic Tiger.
A mysterious document discovered hundreds of years previously in Dusseldorf in Germany is their main source of information. The document contains the story of a gargantuan and unending traffic jam that started in the early 21st century and stretched across the country.
The anonymous narrator in An Bhfuil Stacey ag Iompar? (Is Stacey Pregnant?) weaves dark humour through this lively telling of the lives of the drivers trapped in the traffic jam; how they lived, how they loved and what ultimately became of them.
