LEO CULLEN was born in County Tipperary and now lives in Monkstown, County Dublin. He was educated at University College Dublin and now works as an Inspector for the Department of Agriculture.Review:
'I tried to remember when I had read a book as funny. I couldn't find one... With this effort alone the author has assured himself a lasting place in comic Irish literature.' John B. Keane, Sunday Independent 'The setting is rural Ireland in the 1950s, and the subject is the adventures of the Connaughton family, headed by Lally senior... a marvellous creation. The final effect is atmospheric and poignant.' Anthony Gardner, Daily Telegraph 'Both subtle and funny... Leo Cullen memorably paints the picture of Connaughton's worlds... and the realities that drive him, in the emotional sense, at 90 miles per hour along the back roads of Tipperary.' Owen Kelly, Irish News 'All the tales are interlinked and the whole thing flows along beautifully... There is richness here, of thought, imagination, description and recollection.' Tim Cramer, Cork Examiner
