Product description

Review

"He has more than charm, he has instinctive kindness and charity, a verbal grace, an unforced assertion of a strong personality" (Sunday Times)

"The best thing in Irish writing since Sean O'Casey" (The Spectator)

Book Description

A moving autobiography from the famous, even infamous Irish playwright and author, Brendan Behan. Continuing the longstanding tradition of political Irish literature, propagated by James Joyce and Sean O'Casey, this is the true story of life in the IRA.
