Brendan Behan Man and Showman. London: Hutchinson, 1967. Second Impression. Illustrated with nine photographic plates. A very good copy in pictorial dust jacket.
Rae Jeffs, the publisher's publicity manager, strives to sustain Behan from alcoholism and the fame that followed Borstal Boy, becoming in effect his manager. This is her story of Behan's erratic final years and his death not long after the birth of his daughter whose Godmother she became. She presents Behan the person, viewed from a strange and touching friendship.
