Myles Away From Dublin

Myles Away From Dublin

Flann O'Brien

Availability: In stock

Gift wrap available

Flann O’Brien (Brian O’Nolan, aka Myles na Gopaleen) adopted not only a new name (George Knowall) for these rarely seen pieces published in the Nationalist. He takes on the character of a quizzical, enquiring humorist who might be found in a respectable pub in Carlow seeing through humbug and cant.

Writing his column 'Bones of Contention' for the Nationalist and Leinster Times, Flann O'Brien took on the character of the quizzical and enquiring humorist who might be found in a respectable public house in Carlow: erudite, urbane and informative, he is the country cousin of the Myles of Dublin, yet still a facet of the complex character who wrote The Third Policeman and At Swim-Two-Birds.

His delight in words, his uncanny ability to see through humbug, are unparalleled. Writers as disparate as James Joyce, Dylan Thomas, Graham Greene and Anthony Burgess have marvelled at his talent. New readers will discover that he is one of the funniest writers in any language, at any time.
