In the salad of Michael Collins’ otherwise perfect life there lurked one undoubted caterpillar, an immature determination to win a county junior hurling title with his beloved De Wets. Collins’ playing history and his personal life contain much to vex the ordinary fan and strain his credulity, which is as it must be. And, like all the great matches "The Drinker with the Hurling Problem" is full of excitement, black humour and gritty reality. Collins’ story will move the compassionate to tears, the just to indignation and the cruel to laughter. This book tells the story of what it takes to make an Irish male vow to change his life, to say nothing of his underpants. Every novelist writes one book too many and maybe that’s what Paddy Coyne has just written; another variation on the Icarus theme: about wax melting, unscheduled descents and, of course, the inclination of God to look the other way when people are suffering most acutely.
