This, the third of Donleavy's autobiographical works, goes into his life before, during and
after The Ginger Man in the most depth. It also chronicles his arduous legal battles with
Maurice Girodias over publishing rights to the author's first and most famous novel. A
must read for those interested in the Donleavy's life and for the surprise outcome of what
surely must have been one of the longest and most complicated copyright suits in the
history of literature.
