About this Item: 1965. Mass Market Paperback. Condition: Fair. Please see any and all photos connected with this listing. A bit scuffed but all pages intact and legible. Good reading copy. Clean. No store stamps. --- --- I have him bitched, balloxed and bewildered, for there's a system and a science in taking the piss out of a screw and I'm a well-trained man at it.' So writes Brendan Behan, poet, writer and literary legend, of the episode that coloured his life. Arrested in Liverpool as an agitator for the IRA, he was tried and sent to reform school. He was sixteen years old. The world he entered was brutal and coldly indifferent. Conditions were primitive, and violence simmered just below the surface. Yet, Brendan Behan found something more positive than hate in borstal: friendship, solidarity and healing flashes of kindness. Extraordinarily vivid, fluent, and moving, it is a superb and unforgettable piece of writing. Seller Inventory # 18892

Farbiges OPaperback mit zweifarbiger Rücken- und Deckelbeschriftung. *Brendan Behan (1923-1964), einer von Irlands großen Dramatikern, erzählt in seinem 1958 erschienenen autobiographischen Roman temperamentvoll, mit großem Sprachwitz und überschäumender Phantasie die Geschichte seiner Jugend. Mit 16 Jahren wird er 1939 als Mitglied der IRA wegen des Besitzes von Sprengstoff und Sabotage zu drei Jahren Gefängnis verurteilt. Er verbüßt seine Strafe in der englischen Jugendhaftanstalt Borstal zusammen mit Zuhältern, Dieben und sogar Mördern. Er streitet mit den einen und verbündet sich mit den anderen gegen die Aufseher, Lehrer und bigotten Priester. Gemeinsam brüten sie wilde Streiche aus und rebellieren, prahlen, aber vor allen Behan, der »Paddy«, flucht und tobt, was das Zeug hält - und träumt von Irland. - Neuwertiges Exemplar der vergriffenen Ausgabe*.
