Only 2 left in stock

In the five novels by Ireland’s greatest comic writer we can explore the full range of his invention, from the multi-layered madness of At Swim-Two-Birds to the piercing realism of The Hard Life and the surreal logic of The Third Policeman. This is a world where bicycles listen to conversations, inventors search formethods of ‘diluting’ water, and characters play truant while novelists sleep; a world where spiteful fairies wreak havoc and heroes from legend blunder into suburban sitting-rooms. This is recognizably the Ireland of Joyce and Beckett – rowdy, high-spirited, by turns sensual and and cerebral -transformed by O’Brien’s unique vision.
