The first of Donleavy's three autobiographical nonfiction works, followed in
chronological order by A Singular Country
, 1989 and The History of The Ginger Man,
1994. Donleavy, as always, shoots straight from the hip, and in this volume in particular,
ruffling the feathers of manys the Irish in the process.

It's been said that to criticize something worth a damn, one has to learn to love it first.
Donleavy often states in interviews that he moved to Ireland and became a citizen for tax
reasons, but it's evident in his writing that there is plenty of warmth toward his adopted
home amidst the barbs and bolo punches.
