Overview

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."
