Some of the most famous names in the history of literature written in English were born and lived in Dublin or had close connections with the city, from Jonathan Swift to Samuel Beckett. In this book, Vivien Igoe describes the connections that countless writers have had with Dublin, whether as residents or merely as visitors, and weaves anecdotes with details of the locations associated with famous names and how to find them. Also included is a selection of pubs with literary and historical connections.
