Gogarty was a leading figure in the Irish literary renaissance of the early twentieth century whose legendary wit and skills as a raconteur outshone his considerable accomplishments as a writer and poet.
Witty, eccentric and vastly entertaining, this is Gogarty's second and best-known autobiographical book. Written with passion and keen observation, it paints a vivid portrait of Dublin in the 1920s. It is peopled with an extraordinary cast of characters from the cultural and political life of the time who were Gogarty's personal friends: W. B. Yeats, James Joyce, George Moore, William Orpen, Lady Lavery, Augustus John, Arthur Griffith, Tim Healy and Michael Collins.
