The late Owen Kelly was one of Northern Ireland's best-loved humorists, known predominantly for his two long-running columns for The Irish News - Kelly's World and The Saturday Column. He was the author of two volumes of autobiography (Tales Out of School and Hens' Teeth), two volumes of Ulster humour (Kelly's Country and Kelly's World) and a wealth of newspaper, radio and magazine work. Owen sadly died in 2008.Review:
The authentic voice of Ulster - irreverent, independent, humorous and humane. * Northern Life * An original mind with a refreshing line in humorous understanding. A fine crack of Flann O'Brien-ish lyrical fancy. * Times Educational Supplement * this little book opens his wonderful writing to a new generation. Get it. I'm just sane, like, you have no raisin not to -- The Argus a question of pronunciation rather than dialect, it raises a chuckle -- Books Ireland
