Playwrights. novelists, short story writers, poets, essayists historians and philosophers... all are included in this intimate account of the lives and works of over seventy Irish writers.

Here, Irish writing is seen within the context of each writer's life and times, and many curious details, such as the secret scribblings of an Irish rector, are revealed. Who, for example. turned to writing when he ran a sword through a fellow actor Who stole a priest s name and described himself as Irish potato seasoned with Attic salt'?
