This classic evocation of the period 1945-55 celebrates a city and its personalities: Brendan Behan, Patrick Kavanagh, Myles na gCopaleen (Flann O'Brien), as well as `Pope' O'Mahony, Gainor Crist the original Ginger Man, and others. A remarkable group who were to revitalize post-war literature in Ireland.
