Handy Andy is the most enduringly popular of the novels of Samuel Lover, author, artist, and musician. The laughing philosopher of the title is Andy Rooney, a fellow who had "the most singularly ingenious knack of doing everything the wrong way." More than simply a comic novel, it has been described as "a pill to purge melancholy." There is certainly a musicality in the language, combined with the accomplished artist’s eye for composition in this wonderful and farcical tale of Irish life.

About the Author:

Samuel Lover, novelist, artist and musician was born in Dublin on February 24, 1797. A prolific writer, he also won acclaim for his miniature portraits of the aristocracy. His collected songs were published during his lifetime, and his writing has been dramatized for the Adelphi Theatre, London. Together with Charles Dickens he co-founded BENTLEY’S MAGAZINE, before his death on July 6, 1868.
