About this title

Synopsis:

This classic evocation of the period 1945-55 celebrates a city and its personalities: Brendan Behan, Patrick Kavanagh, Myles na gCopaleen (Flann O'Brien), as well as `Pope' O'Mahony, Gainor Crist the original Ginger Man, and others. A remarkable group who were to revitalize post-war literature in Ireland. As friend, publisher, and fellow artist, Ryan paints a vivid picture of this ebullient, fertile milieu: ""No more singular body of characters will ever rub shoulders again at any given time, or a city more uniquely bizarre than literary Dublin will ever be seen.

Review:

"'As one reads his words, dressed in their wonderful finery of irony, the world he speaks of reblossoms to be back again awhile. To see, feel and smell the Dublin of that day... a masterpiece of reminiscence' - from the foreword by J.P. Donleavy."
