A remarkable piece of Irish Literature
on 20 June 2001
James Stephens was working as a clerk in a solicitor's office in Dublin when he wrote this book. As far as I know It was written around 1911. This book Places Mr Stephens among the ranks of writers such as W.B. Yeats & James Joyce.
A match for Lewis Carroll's Alice stories, this book is a treasure of Irish literature. Philosophers, Policemen, Leprechauns, and a naked woman here & there all provide the ingredients for a great read. Why has Holywood ignored this script I ask?
My favorite line from The book " A sword, a spade, and a thought should never be allowed to rust."
Ok just one more " The scalp of your enemy is progress"
Buy this classic, place it next to Joyce & Yeats on your bookshelf.
Go raibh Maith agat.
