Shame about the quality of the print in this book,
This review is from: Behan: The Complete Plays: The Hostage/The Quare Fellow/Richard's Cork Leg/And Three One-Act Plays (World Classics) (Paperback)
Behan was a genius shame about the quality of the print in this book. The book is well bound and looks and feels alright but the text is blurry and it basically seems like it is a bound multiple generation scan of an original text. In fact on one page there are barely legible hand written notes. This makes it quite unpleasant to read as many of the letters are blobs of ink and run into each other.
There is a letter included in the introduction that is near impossible to read and is worse that the page on the look inside here which is from a what seems to be the first edition rather than this reissue.
The man deserves better.

Agree entirely with your review.
I've just got my copy and the printing is appalling, to say the least.
I can't read the letters or some of the other parts either.
What a shameful disrespect to one of Ireland's greatest writers.
