9781847171276: Irish Wit: From Behan and Wilde to Yer Man in the Pub

Irish wit is an art form, centuries old yet up-to-the-minute wise, insulting, obscure, profound and idiotic. For years the Irish have mixed wit with wisdom, as they have porter and whiskey, and to the same intoxicating effect! In this book, Sean McCann has succeeded in distilling the essence of Irish wit - on love, religion, the 'hard stuff', the English, with a generous mix from Behan, Yeats, Swift, Moore, O'Casey, but above all from 'yer man', the leading authority on everything that grows, breeds, thinks or computes in the land. Spiced with Tom Matthews cartoons
