This book is a well edited collection of short works (and an unfinished novel) by the great O' Brien. It might appeal more to Flanneurs than to an audience less versed in O' Brien's style. I was glad to be able to read a good number of texts by Flann before Flann, where the genius of his later works shines through. The translations from the Irish are very good, and provide a missing link between Flann's English language novels and An Beal Bocht. Warmly recommended

A refresher for the Flann O'Brien works I read and enjoyed more than 30 years ago and so glad for this reprint..

Amusing stories. Flann O'Brien had a great imagination and a very good sense of humour.
