The lewd and the learned, the intellectuals and the imbeciles, the geniuses and the gabblers - generous Dublin cradles them all. Drawing on several centuries of inspired Irishness, Oliver St John Gogarty recalls discussions with James Joyce, Yeats and Lord Dunsany, and revives the spirits of an older past.Through the secret passages of Celtic castles and the squalor of eighteenth-century slums, the author pursues the magic myths of his nation. He weaves a rich and glittering tapestry from the lives of the famous and the forgotten; a golden vision lit with humour whose true hero is the immortal landscape and soul of Ireland.Also by Oliver St John Gogarty in Sphere:AS I WAS GOING DOWN SACKVILLE STREET TUMBLING IN THE HAY.
