Sean O’Faolain’s second novel.
“Ireland’s greatest story-teller is at his best in this novel. Savage in it characterization, devastating in its portrayal of the squalor and enforced idleness of provincial Ireland, it has been compared with Joyce’s writing on his native Dublin. Still Frank O’Connor cannot fail to find tenderness and wit, nor to hold his reader to the end. “
