Product description

Review

''Directions to Servants' reads as a central document in the long, comic and sly history of Irish disrespect which includes Sterne and Sheridan and Wilde, Joyce and Beckett and Flann O'Brien... A stroke of genius' --Colm Toibin

''Directions to Servants' strikes back at the master-servant dependency with an amusing blend of cynical parody and puerile insolence.' --Independent Online

'The sarcasm veers into outright surrealism it's a good idea, Swift suggests, to fling several pounds of butter at the kitchen wall, and pluck it off as required as his satire turns somersaults. 'Directions to Servants' is in the end less an attack on slovenly staff than a gleefully scatological guide to enacting a filthy revenge on ingrate employers.' --Time Out

From the Publisher

Only available edition of this hilarious work by the author of Gulliver’s Travels.
